God uses the financial generosity of his people to transform students lives on the university and college campuses in Tyler. Would you consider joining the team?

What happens when you give?


You Participate in God's work!  God's work of drawing people to himself cannot be stopped!  By giving of the resources God has given you, you actually participate in the transformative work that he is doing. 

You Help Offer Hope!  Most students are exhausted, hurting, sad, confused, and lonely. RUF is a place for students to be challenged and encouraged by the hope of the gospel. Friendships are being built. God is using RUF to equip these students with hope to face the challenges of life in and beyond college. 

You meet a real financial need! Through giving, you meet a real financial need for a ministry that depends on the generosity of donors. Every dollar that is given to RUF Tyler is beneficial and goes to transform students lives with the hope of Jesus. 

What is our monthly need?

Our yearly budget is $127,377. That averages out to be about $10,615/month.

Our budget goes toward expenses like getting coffee or lunch with a student, scholarships toward Summer Conference and mission trips, purchasing food and supplies for service and hospitality events, national administrative costs (that keep the ship afloat!), as well as the Smith Family's living expenses. 

Currently, regular givers give $8,593/month toward those monthly needs. That means we need new regular monthly giving of about $2,021.

Some people give generously with $10/month.  Others give generously with $100/month. Still others give generously with $500/month. 

Would you ask God if he would have you give of the resources he has given you toward his transformative work through RUF Tyler?
