East Tennessee State University

Tuesdays at 8 in Roger Stout 102 (Come at 7:30 to hang out and eat desserts!)

RUF at ETSU is a campus ministry that longs to embody the radical love of Jesus. At RUF we don't want to pretend we have it all together. We are people in need of God's grace. Because of this, ALL are welcome to be a part of RUF, regardless of your spiritual/religious background or beliefs. RUF exists for the convinced and unconvinced, the anxious and the depressed, the burned, bored, cynical and spiritual.
Whoever you are and whatever your story, RUF exists for you!
