Howdy! Welcome to Texas A&M RUF. We are a campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) that welcomes students from any and all walks of life. Students from a wide variety of church and religious backgrounds are involved here at RUF. We are here for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced."
Our ministry is centered upon the person and work of Christ. We believe the Christian life is not primarily about what we do, but rather who we are. RUF is focused on helping students learn to live all of life in light of God's Word and his work on their behalf.
God created us to live in relationship with himself and our fellow man. Unfortunately sin has wrecked our lives and relationships. It is our desire to help students understand and apply the redemptive work of God in their lives. We want to show students how they are to live in relationship with God and one another.

William grew up in the hills of Birmingham, AL, and graduated from Auburn University with a BS in Zoology/Conservation and Biodiversity. During college he embraced Christ in faith through the ministry of RUF, where he also met his beautiful wife, Katherine. After graduation William worked as a fisheries biologist in the New Orleans area. Sensing his call to ministry, William and Katherine transitioned to Baton Rouge where he served as an RUF intern at LSU. The Bondurants then moved to Jackson, MS, where William worked at Highlands Presbyterian Church as the Young Adult Ministry Intern and attended Reformed Theological Seminary. William graduated with an MDiv in 2018, and the Bondurants moved to College Station to serve as the RUF Campus Minister at Texas A&M University.
William and Katherine spend most of their time enjoying their precious daughters, Lillian and Selene. William loves all things outdoors, college football, hole in the wall restaurants, reading good books, and of course, talking about Jesus and his Word. He loves Aggieland and loves ministering in Jesus’ name to students at Texas A&M. Gig ‘em!
Mackenzie grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and attended Oklahoma State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology. Her sociology degree was focused on law and crime and she graduated with these degrees in 2018. Mackenzie is passionate about being intentional with those around her, spending time in the warmth of the sun while on the lake, and drinking coke while having a game night. Oklahoma State's RUF was more transparent and loving than any other community Mackenzie has ever known, and she is so excited to facilitate such an atmosphere and share the love of Jesus with those at Texas A&M.
