College Ministries walks with students in their journeys of faith and learning. We listen to students' stories, encourage reflection, and develop gifts for leadership and service to the common good. At Luther and beyond, we are a catalyst for God’s justice, peace and care for all creation.
Luther College is a Reconciling in Christ congregation, affirming our welcome to LGBTQIA+ persons to fully participate in our ministry. United in opposing all forms of violence or discrimination, we are committed to welcoming all people into our congregation.Read our philosophy
“What makes working with College Ministries a unique and delightful experience for me, is the recognition of all people as a people of God. As an ethnic minority and non-Lutheran Christian, it means a lot to me, and people of other minor groups, to serve in an environment where the gospel of inclusion is not only preached but also practiced.”
— Menzi Nkambule ‘18
College Ministries Mission Statement: In the spirit of Beloved community, we: Welcome everyone. Work for justice. Walk with students in their journey of faith and learning.
College Ministries welcomes everyone, regardless of their faith background. We work for justice by getting involved in justice issues through advocacy both on and off campus. Most importantly, we walk with students in their journey of faith and learning through accompaniment, both personally and through programmatic means.
College Ministries enriches Luther's partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America by serving as a link between the Luther community and congregations, pastors, youth directors, synods, and ELCA organizations.
