Local Churches

You need a church home, not just a campus ministry.  RUF can do a lot for you, but it could never fill many of the needs that only a local church can provide.  We recognize that it can be hard to find a good church in college - lots of different choices, you don't already know people, the church isn't like your church back home, it can be hard to find rides, and, let's be honest, it is hard to wake up in the a.m. on a college weekend!  The benefit of involvement in a local church is worth making the effort.

To make it easier, here are some churches RUF is connected with and some places that RUF students attend.  At any of these churches there are people who would love to reach out to you, have you in their home, and pray for you - you might even end up with a home-cooked meal.  If you are in need of a ride, please contact the campus minister.
