Campus Outreach

Campus Outreach is an interdenominational campus ministry that exists to "multiply Christ-like leaders" on the campus for the lost world. Our heart is, through evangelism, prayer, and discipleship to see students fall in love with Jesus through the Word & prayer, learn how to lead others to Him, and beg God to transform lives. Having begun as a ministry at Samford in 1978, Campus Outreach is now at nearly 80 campuses and five continents.

RUF at Samford

Since 2002, RUF has ministered to students at Samford, giving a well-developed, heart-felt witness to the person and work of Jesus Christ. We long to cultivate mature relationships among students that manifest themselves in a love for others, a heart for service, and a deep intimacy with the Living God. As God deals with us through His Word and through each other, we hope to see the Kingdom of God advance beyond the walls of Samford into the community at large. We invite you to be a part of God's work in, with, and through RUF at Samford.

We are a simple ministry, desiring to remain faithful to our tenets of word, worship, and prayer as we grow through discipleship, community, and mission. In keeping with our focus on the essentials, our worship service on Wednesday nights is basic without frills or flash. As the college ministry of Mountain Brook Community Church, we meet on Sunday mornings during the community group hour to walk through a book of the Bible, studying and questioning together.
