Our Speaker


Rick Hove is the National Director of Cru’s ministry to university professors, Faculty Commons. He was blessed to be raised in a Christian home and came to Christ in his teenage years. His time in college at Georgia Tech was a time of great spiritual growth for him, and he still loves college students more than faculty (don’t tell anyone!). Rick is married to Sonya and has 3 children: Andrew (married to Dana), Meagan, and Mark.
