1. The RUF Permanent Committee announced the nomination of Reverend Thomas Cannon to serve as the next coordinator of Reformed University Fellowship, pending approval by the General Assembly. We are thankful for 15 years of faithful service from Dr. Rod Mays and look forward to seeing how God will work in the coming years.
2. In 2014, we are seeking to be both bold and wise. Bold in believing that God will:

They'll join an amazing group of fellow interns; the 2013-15 class consisted of 54 interns!
6. Check out what some students have to say about RUF:
"RUF is the only place I could find where the whole gospel is preached unapologetically, week after week."

"RUF has become my family! It's a source of truth and a beacon pointing out the light of Jesus Christ!"

8. The Partners Fund was created to bring RUF to the most strategic, challenging campuses in the country. A couple of RUF campus ministries that began as initiatives of the Partners Fund include Duke University, Baylor, University of California-Berkeley, and so many more!
You can designate your gift "Partners" to join in this strategic initiative.
9. RUF loves the church! RUF has assisted in planting 7 churches!
10. RUF is now in 39 states across the country!
