Welcome to Reformed University Fellowship at Kansas State University! RUF has been active on campus since 2013 and has a vibrant group of those who are committed to Christ as well as those who are curious about the Christian faith. We have a number of different ways for you to get connected including small group Bible studies, large group, and social events. Regardless of your beliefs or doubts, RUF is a place for you to explore Christianity and grow in your understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him alongside others. We hope you'll come around, get to know us, and let us get to know you!

Meet Our Team

Jon Dunning

Jon Dunning

Campus Minister

Rev. Jon Dunning grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin, graduated from Miami University (Ohio, not Florida) with degrees in mathematics and secondary education, and received a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis.

While in seminary, he fell for a smart, beautiful, out-going engineer from St. Louis named Tricia and they were married in 1999. They have been blessed with three kids: Lucy (2004), Jack (2007), and Thad (2011). When he can find or make the time, Jon watches football and reads.

Jon served for over nine years as Associate Pastor at Oak Hills Presbyterian Church in Overland Park, Kansas. The Dunnings moved to Manhattan in August 2013 to start an RUF work at Kansas State. They are thrilled to serve college students through the gospel at “K-State.”

Emily Owen

Emily Owen


Born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama. Graduated from Mississippi College with a degree in Elementary Education. Some passions of mine are teaching, coffee from the locals, being outside, petting dogs, playing of the sports, and being the last one on the dance floor. RUF at MC played a pivotal role in my walk with Christ and I am pumped to serve alongside it at Kansas State, go wildcats!

John Talmage

John Talmage


John was born and raised in Eastern Iowa and graduated from the University of Tulsa in May 2018 with a degree in Computer Science. He enjoys spending time with friends, hiking, ping-pong, and ultimate frisbee. On a very rare occasion he may attempt to engage in a “hip” activity such as going to a coffee shop or wearing stylish clothes, but the odds of catching him in the act are pretty slim. Especially both at the same time. John loved his time in RUF at TU and is excited to be serving as an intern at Kansas State!
