To all who are spiritually weak and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort; to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who are strangers and want fellowship; to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whomsoever will come, RUF opens wide her arms and offers welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
RUF is a Christian ministry for FGCU. RUF brings to FGCU a heart for Christ and a love for the campus. We seek to develop a community that wrestles with the truths of the historic Christian faith in ways that are plausible to the skeptical student and life-changing for the Christian. We explore how the Gospel impacts topics such as love, good, evil, life, existence, beauty, pain, purpose, freedom, and friendship. Students from all walks of life are welcome.
