Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is a Christian ministry at Florida Gulf Coast University. RUF exists to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve. But you don’t have to be a Christian to come to RUF. RUF is a place where every student, regardless of their background or personal beliefs, can examine the truths of biblical Christianity in ways that are plausible to the skeptic and life-changing for the believer. All are welcome!
RUF meets on campus Tuesday nights for worship and Bible study, and in small groups throughout the week. We go on retreats and mission trips, and have social events and do service projects. Being involved in RUF is a great way to grow in your faith, search for answers, and find community. We’d love to meet you, so come check us out!
