Our ministry is unbudgeted at Erskine, making us dependent upon the gifts of individuals and churches like you who have a heart for campus ministry, so your support is needed and appreciated!

 

WHAT WILL YOUR GIFT GO TOWARDS?

Book Table and Small Groups - We provide books for small groups, for individuals, and for Pre-Marital Counseling of students and alums, usually either for free or for 50% cost if they can contribute.  You can help us afford to put great resources in the hands of students.

Large Group needs - Our weekly cookouts at the Barn are FREE for all students, thanks to gifts from churches and indviduals.  The hay we sit on, the field we play and park in, the fire ants we treat, the recreation we provide and the Barn facility/structure we maintain as a clean, safe meeting place and space are all routine expenses that our unique ministry incurs.  

RUF Conferences - Every Fall and Summer we benefit from attending regional and national conferences with RUF.  We attempt to reduce the expense students incur for attending these by providing a 50% scholarship, which enables more students to attend! 

One to One Ministry - Whether over coffee or lunch, taking students off campus for conversation and getting into the story of one another's lives is invaluable to our personal and relational ministry to individuals.

Special Events-  Whether the annual Fall BBQ and Hymn Sing with Indelible Grace, the annual J-Treat at Bonclarken, or the Spring Barn-K "for JOY!"  5-K run to raise $1,000 a scholarship for a local Due West resident with special needs (Warren Sullivan) to attend Camp Joy in the summer, these events are expensive but are invaluable to the life and ministry of RUF at Erskine.

Thank you for your prayer and financial support of RUF at Erskine!  Feel free to contact me with any comments or questions you might have at Paul.Patrick@ruf.org
