What Do You Do?

Luther House students are invited to participate in a variety of activities throughout the academic year. Explore your faith and form lasting friendships through opportunities like student dinners, holiday parties, retreats, group service projects and workshops. Luther House regularly collaborates with community partners and other student ministries, such as Westminster House, to provide programming and resources to students.

Do You Have To Be Lutheran?

No. Luther House is open to all students, regardless of any religious affiliation (or lack thereof). We only ask you to be respectful and considerate of others.

We are Reconciling in Christ

We welcome individuals of all races, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, identities and marital statuses. We advocate for the acceptance, full participation, and liberation of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions within the Lutheran church. We believe that God values and embraces each person as a beloved child, that the Spirit gives a diversity of gifts for the common good, and that Jesus Christ calls us to work for justice.
