Wake Forest University

Join us at 8pm Tuesdays in the Green Room in Reynolda Hall

Welcome to RUF at Wake Forest! We are a community of students on campus seeking to love God and love our neighbor. 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.

Jesus said that he did not come to save the righteous, but sinners. At RUF, we do not wish to pretend to have it all together. We are people in need of grace. Consequently, all are welcome to be part of our group, regardless of personal or religious background. RUF exists for the "convinced" and the "unconvinced," the lost, the found, the burned, bored, cynical, or spiritual. Whoever you are and whatever your story, RUF exists for you.

Chris Horne

Campus Minister

Chris grew up in Macon, Georgia and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He first encountered Jesus through RUF at Georgia Southern University and has since served with RUF at the Savannah College of Art & Design and Appalachian State University. He is married to the incomparable Sara Jane and they have three daughters together (Georgia, Bonnie, and Rosie). Chris loves music of all kinds, playing drums adequately, and hunkering in the Pit long enough to eat breakfast and lunch. He's probably there right now if you want to drop by! Go Deacs!
