New Time, New Challenges, and the Importance of YOU

While planning my recent installation, I realized that this festive occasion marks the beginning of my 40th year of involvement in Lutheran Campus Ministry. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been at it this long.

I began my campus ministry experience in the Fall of 1978 as a new student at the University of Nebraska. Having enjoyed a powerful youth ministry experience in my home congregation, it didn’t take me long to find my way to the Lutheran Student Center located at the heart of campus.

In those days over 70% of the funding need was met by National Lutheran Campus Ministry and synodical grants; only programming funds needed to be raised from from alumni and friends. Today, the situation is exactly reversed: Churchwide and synod grants provide about 30% of our funding, while alumni and friends now provide for the lion’s share of the need.

You see how critical individual gifts are to us. We literally could not operate - we would not be in ministry to college-age young adults at Luther House - if not for the support we receive from individuals who believe in the importance of what we do. If you are one of those people, I want to say a resounding word of thanks! I also want to ask that you keep us in mind as you plan your charitable giving for 2018.
