Campus Ministry

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119:105

The Lutheran campus ministries at Kansas colleges and universities provide a “church home away from home” for students. Our campus ministry leaders understand the challenges students face and are committed to providing them with the support they need, whether those students are longtime Lutherans or new to the faith. If you or someone you know is heading off to college or already there, we encourage you to look into one of the ministries listed here.
