Connecting Campus to Christ

College is hard. Don’t leave your faith life at home. We can help.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.

Colossians 2: 6-8

In 1920, the first campus ministry program began at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. For 100 years, thousands of young adults have found spiritual comfort, community, and encouragement through WELS campus ministries around North America. WELS Campus Ministry, a ministry of WELS Home Missions, continues that legacy by providing resources and support to congregations that serve these college students during a critical transition point in their life. The WELS Campus Ministry Committee currently provides about 30 campus ministries with financial support and assists hundreds of other congregations in their campus ministry outreach.

About 30 congregations receive funding from WELS Campus Ministry for their campus ministry programs every year. With your financial support, WELS Campus Ministry will continue to help grow and support campus ministry programs for years to come. Two needs that have been identified include seed money for new campus ministry programs and a new Campus Ministry mission counselor. Thank you for your support!
