Welcome to RUF Christian Fellowship at Tulane!

RUF is a Christian fellowship on over 150 college campuses across the country.  Why do we exist?  Most philosophies and religions exist to help us find God, enlightenment, or the good life. The Bible claims we can give up these labors. It says God has come to us – in Jesus Christ. 

Therefore, RUF is for the committed and the skeptical, the despairing and the confident, the bored, the cynical, and the passionate. As broken people, we are committed to the gospel of Jesus, believing He has the power to change and renew any person, community, and culture. Because we believe Jesus is the embodiment of love, we seek to tell and show one another of His love, that we may rest in it and be conformed to it. 

RUF exists to reach and equip college students to love and serve Jesus, His Church, and the world.
We hold to Jesus and the historic Christian faith, and so are motivated to love God and neighbor.


A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know
that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
— John 13:34-35
