As a Christian ministry at USAFA, we strive to reach cadets with the good news of Jesus, equip cadets to grow in their faith, and deploy cadets into the Air Force as servant leaders. Although the rigors of USAFA-life are demanding and often exhausting, first amendment rights are protected and religious education is encouraged. RUF seeks to be a community that deeply cares for one another, a hospital that brings restorative healing, a gym that enables spiritual growth, and a lighthouse that shines the life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that he did not come to save the righteous, but sinners. At RUF, we do not wish to pretend to have it all together. We are people in need of grace. Consequently, all are welcome to be part of our group, regardless of personal or religious background. RUF exists for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced," the lost, the found, the burned, bored, cynical, or spiritual. If this sounds interesting to you, please contact us. We would love to get to know you!

When asked where he is from, Jeff responds with a resounding “Merica!” Raised in an Army family, Jeff has lived everywhere from Virginia to Alaska, Kentucky to Kansas, and Georgia to Germany. Jenn, on the other hand, is a Texan through and through! The two met while students at Baylor University where they were actively involved with RUF. Shortly after graduating in 2007, they were married and moved to Maine, where Jeff began an eight-year career in the United States Air Force as an Airfield Operations Officer. The Air Force would then take them on a wild ride around the world, including 5 moves and 2 deployments.
The Lord graciously used these experiences to reveal a passion in their hearts for full-time ministry, so with joyful trepidation, Jeff separated from the Air Force to attend Redeemer Seminary where he received a Masters of Divinity. In addition, Jeff serves as a Chaplain in the Army Reserves at Fort Carson. For fun, the Kreisels enjoy traveling so Jeff can collect cheesy fridge magnets, snowboarding trips so Jenn can lounge in the lodge, and family movie nights so their daughters (Abby Jo, Ruth Anne, and Betsie Lynn) can watch My Little Ponies! The Kreisels endeavor to reach, equip, and deploy servant leaders from USAFA into a hurting world with the life-transforming love of Jesus Christ.
