This website supports the LCMS campus ministry efforts which have recently been revised and are currently being expanded. The site includes a list of schools with active LCMS campus ministries, as well as many other resources valuable to those at schools who are not yet served by an LCMS campus ministry including social media outlets including Facebook, twitter, and Tumblr to help you connect with others who share your faith. There are also links to other resources including devotionals, sermons, music, and mission opportunities through the main website for the synod.
PLEASE contact David Apps with your current contact information so we can keep in touch with you during the school year.
Wittenberg Lutheran Center on the campus of Illinois State University
Job 28:12 poses a question that many in our age ask; "But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell?” As Christians, we know the answer is in our Lord. Proverbs 2:6 affirms this very well: “For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
For those students attending college in the Bloomington Normal area, we look forward to the College ministry opportunities at Wittenberg Lutheran Center. If you will be in the Bloomington Normal area for college, enjoy the blessings of Wittenberg as resource for Bible Study and great fellowship opportunities. We look forward to supporting our local campus ministry by promoting events on our young adult’s page on our website.
