Meet the Team

Pastor Mike Ostrom hails from the Great Plains (Nebraska and Illinois) where he served in both congregational and campus ministry until accepting the call to Luther House in 2017.  Mike describes himself as a person "after God's own heart."  He's passionately curious about God's ways in the world.  He longs to know God as intimately and powerfully as Jesus did, as "Abba" or Papa.  He wishes for OSU students to be set free from the extreme individualism and functional atheism of our present secular age and to recover and experience of God as a "lively character and active agent" in their lives and world.  Mike is a natural teacher and encourager.  He loves to help students flourish and discover their part in God's ongoing creation and healing of the world.
