Tennessee Tech University

Join us Wednesdays, 8pm, Stonecipher 126

RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) is a community of students that exists to love and serve God and Tennessee Tech. Our goal is to help students come to understand, know, and follow Jesus Christ as they walk through their college years, and to help lay a foundation for a lifetime of following Jesus and serving him in all areas of life. We're here for the campus, reaching out to both religious and non-religious students. We want to be a safe place for skeptics and a rest stop for weary, burned out Christians. Whoever you are and whatever your story, RUF is for you.

Jeff spent his childhood moving around before his dad took a church in Greeneville, Tennessee. He graduated from Tennessee Tech with a degree in Computer Science. While at Tennessee Tech, Jeff fell in love with the ministry of RUF. Through RUF, God taught Jeff how to be vulnerable and to love other students and their stories. Jeff is looking forward to working with students and seeing God at work on Tech's campus!
