A Christian student organization and collegiate ministry serving the University of Rhode Island.


Matt & Alis Henderson
Campus Minister & Associate Director

We have been serving in collegiate ministry for over 15 years now, and we started Rhody Christian Fellowship in 2012. Prior to coming to URI, we served collegiate ministries at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) and Middle Tennessee State University (Murfreesboro, TN). We recognize that a person’s time in college is critical for determining the path that they will take in life. During your college years, belief systems are challenged, new opportunities and obstacles arise in life, and you are deciding who you are going to be after you graduate. We enjoy helping students walk through this challenging time, and to help them examine what it means to follow Jesus in every aspect of life.

Matt is a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Louisville, KY), where he is also currently pursuing his doctorate in biblical counseling. He is a worship leader who travels leading worship for churches, college ministries, conferences, etc. Matt is a URI Chaplain, serving as the SBC representative of the URI Chaplains Association.
