A Home and a Family

One of the biggest aspects of our work in RUF is creating community. It begins with a campus minister reaching out and ministering to students, but the end goal is a gospel-centered community of students, under the care of a campus minister, ministering to each other and drawing outsiders in. It is a long process, and we still have a ways to go at UConn, but we got a taste of it this year and it has been wonderful to see.

This is one graduating senior's take on the work God has done at UConn in her time there:
"UConn may have just been a school, but RUF made it a home. These people may have just been strangers but RUF made us a family. RUF has not only impacted my life but changed it entirely. It has taught me how to love and how to be loved, and for that I am eternally grateful. I feel so blessed to call these people my brothers and sisters even though my journey at UConn has come to an end."
