Hey Campus Ministry supporters!

Do you remember when you were 18-21 years old? What an exciting time of your life! The world is your oyster! New horizons, new opportunities, so many doors open for you. How exciting to go off to college, finally become a grown up, and begin YOUR life!

However, the devil knows how to strike when the iron is hot. There is perhaps no better time for him to attack than when a young adult goes off to a public college or university. No one is waking you up in the morning to go to church on Sunday. There are plenty of opportunities to forgo a Godly lifestyle and experience all the world has to offer. Faith can be tested. Faith can be tried. Faith can even be lost.

That’s where WELS Campus Ministry fits in. Campus Ministry, a ministry of WELS Home Missions, exists to provide resources, support, and encouragement to WELS congregations that serve college students around the United States and Canada. What a vital ministry this is at such an important time of transition!

Encourage college students in your life

Do you know college-age Lutherans? Refer them to sign up with WELS Campus Ministry so we can share their information with the local campus pastor and send/e-mail them free copies of Meditations devotions and Forward in Christ magazine.

Get involved in campus ministry

Every WELS member and congregation, no matter your location, can be involved in WELS Campus Ministry:

  • Do you live in a college town? Is there a technical or community college nearby? Consider starting a campus ministry program in your area.
  • Don’t have a college in your area? Support your congregation’s college students while they’re away.

Check out the Campus Ministry Toolkit, filled with new ideas and resources for you and your congregation to use to get involved.
