RUF ministry

Students at Erskine College benefit from a number of active campus ministries to promote their growth as whole persons, able to flourish spiritually, academically, and socially. Read more about students’ experience with campus worship on the Erskine Student Blog.

Rev. Paul Patrick, College Chaplain, maintains an office in the Watkins Student Center and is available to advise, listen, and encourage all students throughout the school year.

Students are encouraged to join a wide variety of student ministries including Reformed University Fellowship, Baptist Collegiate Ministries, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Also, many students participate in a variety of Bible studies, mission trips, and community service projects during their years at Erskine.

Denominational Groups, sponsored by various denominations represented on the Erskine campus, include the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Student Union and Baptist Campus Ministries. Other denominational groups form as interest dictates.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes is open to players, coaches, trainers, and others interested in sports in order to promote Christ on the campus and in the community. Club members enjoy fellowship with one another and being involved in community service projects.

The Student Christian Association (SCA) opens its membership to all students, and all are encouraged to be active in its endeavors. The SCA sponsors the annual freshman soiree. At various times the SCA conducts appropriate convocation services and retreats. The SCA annually presents a scholarship enabling a foreign student to attend Erskine. This scholarship honors the late Dr. Janet Alexander, for many years an honored medical missionary to Pakistan.
