At RUF at Texas Tech we believe that you are never so GOOD that you stand outside of the NEED of God’s grace... and at the same time you are never so BAD that you stand outside of the REACH of God’s grace. God's grace is necessary for all and sufficient for any.
Since 2001, RUF has ministered to students at Texas Tech with this in mind, giving a well-developed, heart-felt witness to the person and work of Jesus Christ. We long to cultivate mature relationships among students that manifest themselves in a love for others, a heart for service, and a deep intimacy with the Living God. As God deals with us through His Word and through our relationships with each other, we hope to see the Kingdom of God advance on the campus of Texas Tech and into the community at large.
We invite you to be a part of God’s work in, with, and through RUF at Texas Tech.
Dagan feels weird writing about himself in the third person. He married the new girl at church, Jen, who caught his eye while he was preaching the worst sermon of his life. She was clearly trying to avoid him. Jen loves to ride horses and this scares Dagan. Dagan hated to run but now he loves to run (a dog name Bella taught him). Dagan and Jen love Royals' baseball, cooking together, and board games, but not as much as they love Andrew, who is a morning person that looks just like Dagan but has all the expressions of Jen. Dagan wants to have an office filled with old maps, intellectual books he'll read some day, and a humidor. He has been praying about doing RUF for three years and cannot wait to meet all the students at Tech.
Kim also feels weird writing about herself in the third person. After graduating from high school in El Paso, Texas, she decided to stay close to home, but not too close, by going 40 miles down the road to New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. At NMSU, Kim got involved with RUF her freshman year and loved it so much she decided she wanted to do the RUF internship, and is beyond excited to meet all of the RUF students at Texas Tech. Some of her favorite things (in no particular order): podcasts, traveling, surprises, binge-watching Parks & Rec, singing way too loud, cows, ring-tailed lemurs, making to-do lists, and watching college football!
