The Cade Chapel– Nate Ruffin Scholarship Fund was established in 2003 in honor of the late Brother Nate Ruffin. We were blessed during the 1990’s to have Brother Ruffin, his wife Sharon, and their children join our church family while they were residents in Jackson. During that time, Brother Ruffin was employed as Human Resources Director for the Clarion Ledger and served as a gifted motivator for our youth and church family. The defining turning point of his life is depicted on the silver screen in the Warner Brothers’ movie “We Are Marshall” released in 2006. It is the true story about hope and the will to overcome life’s tragedies.
