RUF is a Christian community for Queens students to search for answers to the big questions of life, rest from busyness, and grow in a living, wholehearted faith. We are here so students of any background who are interested in Christianity can explore what it means to be a Christian and so Christians can grow in their faith. The community of RUF takes place in a variety of ways: large group gatherings, small groups, and individual meetings between students or with the RUF campus minister.
