RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) is a campus ministry at UAH that desires to be a community that reaches students of divergent beliefs and doubts with the message of the gospel and equips them to love and serve Jesus and his church.

RUF exists to be a rest stop for the weary and a safe place for the unconvinced. Regardless of your background or beliefs, personal convictions or deep-seated doubts, RUF is a place for you to explore the truth claims of the bible and grow in your understanding of Jesus Christ and what it means to follow Him.
