Welcome to RUF Ole Miss. We are a campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) that welcomes students from any and all walks of life. Students from a wide variety of church and religious backgrounds are involved here at Ole Miss. We are here for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced."
Our ministry is centered upon the person and work of Christ. We believe the Christian life is not primarily about what we do, but rather who we are. RUF is focused on helping students learn to live all of life in light of God's Word and his work on their behalf.
God created us to live in relationship with himself and our fellow man. Unfortunately sin has wrecked our lives and relationships. It is our desire to help students understand and apply the redemptive work of God in their lives. We want to show students how they are to live in relationship with God and one another.
