Welcome to RUF at Trinity University! RUF is a Christian community on campus that seeks to love God, love others, and love Trinity. If you're a Christian we invite you to join us as we seek to grow in the grace of Jesus. If you're curious about Christianity, we invite you to join us as you explore the claims of Christ. Everyone is welcome regardless of personal or religious background. RUF at Trinity is here for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced," the lost, the found, the burned, bored, cynical, or spiritual. We invite you no matter where you are in the process.
