RUF West Conference brings college students together at the beginning of the new year, eager for relaxation, fellowship and teaching near the beach neighborhood of Mission Bay in San Diego.
Growing and Connecting
RUF West Conference 2020 will again offer teaching that is biblical, honest, compelling, respectful, and comprehensible. We welcome and delight in the reality that students are coming from many different places spiritually. It is our hope that Large Group teaching and seminars give you a unique and insightful opportunity for growth and exploration of the Christian faith. Fellowship will also allow time to thoughtfully evaluate what you are hearing with staff and peers.

Large Group Speaker
David (aka “DJ”) has been a Pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church since 2011, having previously served as the Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) Campus Minister at Stanford University. He and his wife, Mindi, have 3 delightful children – Kylie, Jaden, and Averly – who keep life exciting and unmanageable. Their favorite family ritual is exploring the Bay Area to “see something beautiful” and “eat something delicious.” While both David and Mindi share a common love for Crossfit, Mindi is the real athlete in the family. She’s also an insanely good cook, with remarkable gifts of hospitality.
David also loves finding new places to eat, cycling, college football, snow skiing, live music, and great coffee – especially when these things are shared with others. His heart is for Grace Presbyterian Church to always feel like a place where you are “free to struggle” instead of “struggling to be free.”
Your campus minister will provide you with a schedule for the week (including a list of seminars) closer to the date of the event.
