Welcome to RUF at Colorado State! RUF Christian fellowship is a place to explore Christianity and the radical declaration of God's love. RUF exists to show the love of Jesus to the CSU community.

Ryan Hughs

Ryan and Amy are from New Mexico, went to New Mexico State and attended RUF at NMSU. During our time in that ministry our lives were changed forever by the Gospel of the Grace of Jesus Christ. That good news freed us from guilt and fear and continues to deliver us into the throne room of Grace every day. Ryan attended Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis Missouri in order to pursue a call with RUF. And we have been doing campus ministry full-time since 2005 and are excited be at CSU! We also have three little girls, Ava, Jane and Lilly that light up our life.

Zach Slater

Zach majored in mathematics at James Madison University and had the incredible privilege and joy of helping start RUF at JMU. After seeing God do amazing things in the first two years of this ministry and growing in his local church, Zach felt called to join RUF staff as an intern. He is so excited to live in Ft. Collins and can't wait to begin ministry with the students of Colorado State University. Zach enjoys playing almost any sport, riding his road bike, eating pizza and reading good books.
