You belong.

Lutheran Campus Ministry is a student faith community that welcomes diversity, questioning, and honest relationships. Though it says “Lutheran” in our name, we welcome all students – regardless of faith or doubt – to get involved. Join us for our Thursday night Evening Prayer and dinner, join a study or small group, or stop by the student center for a cup of coffee!

About Us

Responding to God’s call, Lutheran Campus Ministry creates an affirming community that provides students with opportunities to deepen faith, engage minds, and serve neighbors.

Lutheran Campus Ministry is centered in Jesus Christ’s embodiment of the love and grace of God. In that spirit, we welcome all UW-Madison, Madison College, and Edgewood students, faculty, and staff to be a part of this community of faith, worship, service, and fellowship.

As I reflect on my time in Lutheran Campus Ministry, I am most thankful to God for the people that God brought into my life.

From Rev. Tom Dowling, Pastor at Williams Bay Lutheran Church

It is my hope that I can help to create and shape Christian communities that are as vibrant and active as what I experienced at LCM!

– Ryan Panzer, LCM Alum, MDiv Student in Theology through Luther Seminary
