RUF is a community of students that is trying to learn how to love God, love people, and love the University of Tennessee.  The way that we do that is to create safe places (large groups, small groups, one-on-ones) for students of all types and backgrounds to PROCESS the story of Jesus and to learn how to INTEGRATE their lives into His story.

This Fall's Sermon Series

Join us every Tuesday night at 7:30 in AMB 210 as we explore how Jesus personally engaged individuals throughout the Gospel of John. We are going to see Jesus interact with lots of different types of people.  Jesus has a conversation with a naked woman, a PhD religious scholar, a sex addict, one of his own followers that doubts him, two sisters that are grieving the death of their brother, and so on.  Each encounter with Jesus is going to reveal to us who He really is and what He came to do.  


RUF Fall Conference is one of the best things that we do.  We take a weekend and get away from Knoxville to retreat to beautiful Mentone, AL.  You can expect great worship, a wonderful speaker, tons of free time to unwind, lots of new friends to meet, and plenty of good food.  Plan on joining us this year for Fall Conference.
