City Campus

Join us Wednesdays for City Wide Worship // 8:30 PM // NYU Kimmel Center

Mark Twain said it best: if you can make your mark here then you’ve made it, you’ve arrived. And every year, nearly a million college students from around the globe come here to chase that dream. If you’re one of them, you know that NYC is a great place to learn, grow, and build your future. But it can also be cutthroat, chaotic, and lonely.

In the midst of that, RUF City Campus is a diverse community of students learning together how the extraordinary life of Jesus changes us for the better. Together we build friendships, serve our city, seek answers to our doubts and questions, worship God, and study the Bible. We hope you find us to be a safe place to be in process, whether you identify as a Christian or not.

We go to various schools across New York City, including (but not limited to) New York University (NYU), The New School, City College, Fordham University, The Juilliard School, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Pace University, School of Visual Arts, and The King's College. All are welcome!

Meet Our Team

Matthew Terrell

Matthew Terrell

Campus Minister

Matt hails from Atlanta, GA and is happily married to Megan. They have three children - Eliot, Zoey and Margaret. After graduating from Clemson University, Matt worked in the business world for a year and a half before moving to St. Louis where he and Megan both earned graduate degrees in theology. Before moving to New York they lived and worked in Birmingham, AL. Though now living in the Concrete Jungle, Matt still loves being active outdoors - fly fishing, hiking, exploring. But his favorite hobby is food. He has carefully curated his favorite places to eat hamburgers, donuts, and ice cream in NYC and would love for you to join him on a food adventure!

Megan Terrell

Megan Terrell

Campus Staff

Megan is from Greenville, SC and attended Clemson University for undergrad.  There she met her husband, Matthew, while getting her bachelors degree in Psychology.  After graduating and getting married they ventured out of the South to go to seminary in St. Louis, MO, where she earned a MA in Educational Ministry.  Megan and Matthew moved to Birmingham after completing their respective seminary degrees so that Matthew could begin working with RUF at Samford University.  Four years and three kids later, they moved their family to NYC to continue working with RUF in a new context.  While NYC is very different from anywhere Megan has lived before, she has grown to truly love it and feel at home there.  When she is not at one of the many wonderful playgrounds with her kids, Megan enjoys running along the Hudson River  and visiting the local coffee shops for a delicious and possibly overpriced cappuccino.  When she is not out and about, Megan enjoys sitting down with a good book- she recently finished Liturgy of the Ordinary and Educated, and has plans to reread the last book in the Harry Potter series in the near future.  Megan is thrilled to officially join the RUF staff in NYC after years of volunteering with the ministry, and looks forward to mentoring and discipling students to a deeper understanding of and relationship with Jesus.
