Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is a Christian ministry at Kansas State that is committed to gathering students together to know Jesus, and to growing together as we follow Him.
Regardless of where you're from or where you're going, what you're sure of or what you're doubting, we'd love for you to get involved in any way you'd like.
Rev. Jon Dunning grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin, graduated from Miami University (Ohio, not Florida) with degrees in mathematics and secondary education, and received a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis.
While in seminary, he fell for a smart, beautiful, out-going engineer from St. Louis named Tricia and they were married in 1999. They have been blessed with three kids: Lucy (2004), Jack (2007), and Thad (2011). So Jon’s biggest ‘hobbies’ include playing Legos, building forts, wrestling, and reading Winne-the-Pooh stories. When he can find or make the time, Jon watches football and reads.
Jon served for over nine years as Associate Pastor at Oak Hills Presbyterian Church in Overland Park, Kansas. The Dunnings moved to Manhattan in August 2013 to start an RUF work at Kansas State. They are thrilled to serve college students through the gospel at “K-State.”
John was born and raised in Eastern Iowa and graduated from the University of Tulsa in May 2018 with a degree in Computer Science. He enjoys spending time with friends, hiking, ping-pong, and ultimate frisbee. On a very rare occasion he may attempt to engage in a “hip” activity such as going to a coffee shop or wearing stylish clothes, but the odds of catching him in the act are pretty slim. Especially both at the same time. John loved his time in RUF at TU and is excited to be serving as an intern at Kansas State!
