Harris Bond

Mission to North America - Monroe, LA

Harris Bond, a native of Yazoo City, MS, has been involved in pastoral ministry for 15 years.  He is a graduate of Auburn University and Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC (M.Div.).  While serving as the Assistant Pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Belzoni, MS he met Laura Beth Shields, a graduate of Delta State University who was then living & working in the Jackson area. They married in 2008 and just 3 months later moved to Sylacauga, Alabama where Harris served as the Pastor of Knollwood Presbyterian Church. After 10+ years of proclaiming Christ and serving among a community they love--and three kids later!—they have seen the Lord equipping them and calling them back to the Delta through the Presbytery of Mississippi Valley to the work of Church Planting. They have a passion for the Gospel, the local church and the university setting through their home churches and their love for RUF.

Reformed University Fellowship — Belhaven University

Bentley has been married to his wife, Sarah Love, for over 10 years. They have four children that keep them on their toes: Lila Grace, Annie, Luke, and Camp. Bentley is originally from Meridian, MS and Sarah Love from Jackson, MS. Both of them graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2006 and 2007 where they both met and each came to understand the gospel in a saving way due in large part to the campus ministries they attended and the Christian friends they knew. This ignited a passion in them for ministry to college students which led them to work with CRU for three years - one year at Ole Miss and then two years abroad in Salerno, Italy. From there, Bentley went on to work for three years as a pastoral intern at Palm Vista Community Church in Miami, FL before returning back to Jackson in 2014 to attend Reformed Theological Seminary, from which he graduated in 2017 with his Masters of Divinity Degree. Through these experiences, the Lord has built in Bentley a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ, a desire to minister God's powerful word, a love for people, and a heart for the local Church. As a result, he couldn't be happier to be serving with RUF and he sincerely believes that RUF at Belhaven is an incredibly important work.
