Join us every Wednesday night at 7:30 PM in University Church
Whether you're a new student at Purdue or have been a Boilermaker for a while, we welcome you to check out RUF. Regardless of your beliefs or doubts, RUF is a safe place for you to explore Christianity and grow in your understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him in community with others at Purdue. We seek to be an outward-facing community centered on Jesus & His Gospel. We are on the campus, for the campus. Take a look around to find out more about who we are and how you can get involved with our ministry. Feel free to contact our staff with any questions!
