What is RUF?

Our Background

  • Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). As a ministry of the PCA, we reflect the historic positions of the Church, including: the full authority, inspiration, and inerrancy of the Bible; the necessity of new life in Christ; and the task of the Church to proclaim the Gospel to all the nations and to equip believers for the work of ministry.

Who Are We For?

    • We welcome students from any and all walks of life.  We are here for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced." RUF is present on over a 140+ campuses in the United States.  RUF brings to CNU a heart for God and a love for the university. We care for students coming from all types of diverse backgrounds. i.e. We have students in RUF who would call themselves athiests and we also have students who are looking to go to seminary. We aim to reach the entire student body.

    Why Reformed?

    • Being “reformed” simply means that we hold to an historic and Protestant understanding of Christianity.  We wholeheartedly believe and teach (1) the Bible is the Word of God, (2) Justification is by faith alone in Christ alone, and third (3) that we are continually Sanctified and made more into the image of Christ each day until we meet Him face to face.
