Welcome to RUF at Furman! We seek to reach Furman students for Christ and equip them to serve in His Church. There are many ways to get plugged into RUF - through gathering (weekly RUF Large Group and various events throughout the year), connecting (fellowship groups with other students & meeting with David and the interns), and growing (small group Bible studies).
