Regardless of your beliefs or background, RUF is a community where you can explore Christianity and learn about the amazing hope found in knowing Jesus Christ. We would love to meet you and welcome you to RUF.

RUF is a place where Christians will grow in their faith, and where those who are skeptical or curious are always invited to bring their questions and see what it looks like to know and follow Jesus alongside others at The University of Akron.
