More than just a ministry on the university campus, RUF seeks to be a ministry for the university. We strive to serve in this unique stage of a student’s life in the world they live in, exploring together how the Lordship of Christ informs every area of life.
RUF exists on the campus of Oklahoma State
- To Reach Students for Christ
- To Equip Students for Service in God's Kingdom
We hope to help students wrestle with the realities of life through the framework presented in Scripture, to love and care for them as they prepare for their future vocations, to encourage them as they discover their place in God's broader redemptive program, to provide opportunities for service, ministry, and outreach...and to have a lot of fun in the process.
We are excited about the opportunity to serve the students of Oklahoma State, and want you to know that we would love to get to know you.
