What is RUF?

What's in a name?


Reformed means "conformed" to Scripture in the Bible. Our goal is to reform our life and beliefs to what the Bible teaches as it centers around salvation in Jesus Christ. 

University literally means "the whole truth" or "the truth as a whole." As Christians we take the basis of the University to be that all of creation finds its origin and purpose in the living God. Every good endeavor of the University is meant to bring glory to God who declares his glory to humanity who are made in God's image. Therefore, RUF sees the University as a natural place for championing the Good News of Jesus Christ in word and deed as we seek to think Biblically about our world. 

Because Christians are united to Christ, they are also united to each other. We are called to live in community as we grow to become more like our savior Jesus Christ.. RUF seeks to help students identify and develop their gifts for the benefit of others. By following the example of Christ, we learn to share in one another's joys, sorrows, strengths, and weaknesses.

Reformed University Fellowship ("RUF") is the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). Although RUF is Presbyterian in affiliation, we welcome students from all walks of life and backgrounds, both the "convinced" and the "unconvinced". 

We want RUF to be a place where you can come with your questions, find fellowship with others, and grow in your knowledge of God’s work in Christ and what it means to serve him.
