Welcome to RUF at Western Washington University! We are a community of students seeking to grow in relationship with Christ, be formed in Community and serve all of Creation. We do this through Christian activities (Bible studies, retreats etc.), and social events (shared meals, hikes, movie nights, etc.). Whatever you're background, we would love for you to join us!
In addition to weekly Bible studies, we host a retreat each quarter and have weekly social events. You can email us or follow along at our social media accounts.
Nathaniel grew up in Washington and went to Inglemoor High School and UW. RUF at UW had a huge impact on Nathaniel and started him on the path to becoming a minister. Nathaniel and his wife Suzy both graduated from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis and served a church in Kailua, Hawaii from 2010-2016. In 2016 the Thompsons moved to Bellingham to start RUF at Western. They brought with them their three energetic children, Iain (2010), Addie (2012) and Owen (2014).
