The young adults who comprise Lutheran Campus Ministry (LCM) find their strength in gathering together for worship, vocational discernment, study, fellowship, Christian leadership development, and mutual care. At the same time, LCM students continually stretch themselves: advocating and providing for those who are in need, approaching Scripture with honest vulnerability, and sharing the love of God in academic communities. As the students strengthen and stretch, they are grateful for synod staff and local congregations, who graciously engage LCM through partnerships and collaborations, financial support, and prayer.
Lutheran Campus Ministry at Northwestern University is a welcoming place where students bring their questions and their doubts, their keen minds and their open hearts, their desire to grow and be challenged, their surprise to discover that their baptism really does have something to do with their daily lives! Here they are affirmed, cared for, fed, strengthened, educated, and emboldened to dare to live out their faith in their academics, their jobs, their relationships, the world! This is a place where faith grows . . . beyond this place!

Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Chicago serves the students, faculty, and staff of the higher education institutions in Hyde Park. Living intentionally as baptized children of God—and nurturing mind, body, and spirit—we gather for fellowship, worship, study, and service. In our work, our play, our questions, and our praise, we both rest in God’s grace and challenge one another to live in faith.
