Join us for Small Group! Wednesdays @ 7:00p on the 3rd floor of the SUB.

RUF at UNM is a Christian ministry that is open to all students: the convinced and the unconvinced; the faithful and the skeptical; the joyful and the downtrodden.
"Simon Peter answered him, 'Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.'" (Jn 6:68)

Meet Our Team

Charlie Fiorillo

Charlie Fiorillo

Campus Minister

Charlie was born and raised in Salina, Kansas. He studied music performance and creative writing at Northwestern University, and afterward served as an RUF intern at Purdue University in Indiana. While he was an intern, he met his wife, Noemi, a Houston native who was serving as an RUF intern at Virginia Tech. In 2018 they moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where Charlie attended Reformed Theological Seminary, and in 2022 they moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to meet and love the students at UNM with the love they have received from Jesus. Charlie is very excited to be in a land with wind, mountains, and an unimpeded horizon. In his free time he likes to listen to music, read, write, lift weights, or just sit outside and think about stuff. He’s a bit hard of hearing, so don’t be offended if he asks you to repeat yourself. You can reach him at 785.342.3441, or by email at
