Our Mission Statement:
Lutheran Campus Ministry is a partner ministry of the Montana Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. For more information about the the Montana Synod and the ELCA, visit the links below.
We are a church that is energized by lively engagement in our faith and life. The mission of campus ministry in the ELCA is to invite people in academic settings to engage more deeply with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the community that bears his name, so that they can discover and fulfill their vocation as disciples.
ELCA campus ministry is a Lutheran ministry for students, faculty, staff and others on campus, not just a ministry for Lutherans. It provides an ELCA presence at more than 180 state and private colleges and universities with cooperating congregations in campus ministry at an additional 400 campuses nationwide.
Drawing on the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions, campus ministry bears witness to God’s amazing grace within the context of higher education. Sensitive to the pastoral needs of those on campus and engaged in the intellectual discourse of the university, campus ministry strives to communicate the gospel in fresh ways.
Through worship, study, fellowship and service, members of the academic community taste the fullness of God’s grace. As expansive as Christ’s love, campus ministry reaches out to all who teach and learn, inviting them to experience the challenge of following Jesus.
