Outreach Teams

Outreach teams are student-led mobile ministry groups of the Luther College Congregation who specialize in youth ministry support for congregations within a 100-mile radius of Decorah.

This page is for students who are interested in learning more about what Outreach does. If you are an area congregation looking to request a team for your event, please visit the Outreach page for congregations.

As a member of an Outreach team you partner with congregations by leading worship, Bible studies, and youth events (including lock-ins). Members of teams will learn valuable ministry skills useful in camp settings, future youth ministry occupations, and a life of volunteering in your local congregation. It also helps form close ties with your peers as you learn from each other and do God's work side by side.

The list of teams are as follows

  • HUGS meets Mondays from 8-9 p.m. in Melanchthon (CFL 205).
  • FISH meets Thursdays from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in Qualley Lounge (back of CFL).
  • SOUL meets Tuesdays from 9:15-10:15 p.m. in Main, 2nd floor.
  • ROCK meets Mondays from 9:15-10:15 p.m. in Main, 2nd floor.
  • SHINE meets Tuesdays from 8-9 p.m. in Melanchthon (CFL 205).
