Duke RUF joyfully welcomes students from all walks of life on campus to participate in our community and explore the fullness of who Jesus Christ is from the Scriptures. We seek to increase our knowledge, love, and service of God by studying the Bible, praying together, encouraging one another, as well as having lots of fun. The heart of our mission is to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve.
