RUF Global

REACHING STUDENTS ON CAMPUSES AROUND THE WORLD

“The university is a clear-cut fulcrum with which to move the world. The church can render no greater service, both to itself and to the cause of the gospel, than to try to recapture universities for Christ. More potently than by any other means, change the university and you change the world.” –Charles Malik, former President of the United Nations General Assembly

What We Do

RUF Global exists to reach students on college campuses around the world with the hope of Jesus and the truth of the Gospel. We equip these students to serve and build Christ’s church across the globe.

Our RUF missionaries are ordained Campus Ministers and female Campus Staff who have been called to long-term ministry overseas. RUF Global ministry teams also include recent college graduates who are committed to serving two-year internships. These RUF Global missionaries partner with mission teams from Mission to the World (MTW) and Serge, and with national denominations, to minister to college students on overseas campuses.

Where We Are

The first RUF Global campus ministry began in the mid-2000s. Since that time, we’ve grown to have campus ministries in 8 different countries: Mexico, Colombia, Senegal, Ukraine, Malaysia, Japan, and the Czech Republic. Future ministry opportunities include campuses in Canada, France, Australia, and several African countries.

There are 8 Global campuses across the world

RUF Global has opportunities for short-term mission trips you can participate in while you are completing your degree. You can also apply to serve in a two-year internship with one of our ministries after you graduate!

Are you a seminary student or graduate?

We would love to talk with you about current and future opportunities to serve with RUF Global alongside missionaries from MTW and Serge, our two sending partners.
