We meet on Wednesdays at 8PM in SOS B4.

RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) is the official campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America. This ministry holds to the district teachings of the historic reformation, such as the authority of the inspired scriptures, the grace of the gospel, salvation by faith alone through Christ alone, and all to the glory of God alone. The ministry consequently places ordained pastors who must subscribe the historic teachings on the college campus to work with the students who will lead the ministry. RUF welcomes any student from any background to come be a part of what they are doing at USC.
