Lutheran Campus Ministry Builds at the ELCA Youth Gathering

Lutheran Campus Ministry will be present in the Interaction Center at the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, Texas, June 27-July 1, 2018. Our presence there will be include helping Youth Gathering participants to frame the wall sections of three houses, to be donated to Habitat for Humanity in Houston.

The leadership team for LCM Builds 2018 includes Chris Heavner, Shawn Norris, Alicia Anderson, and Greg Schaefer, and since this is a group endeavor on behalf of Lutheran Campus Ministry there are many ways YOU can help.

  1. There will, once again, be students from our ministries who will engage with and work with the youth on site. If you know of anyone who would be good at this, encourage them to apply.
  2. While the costs of promotional materials and leadership team will be covered by grant/endowment funds, and LSM is contributing funds to help cover the cost of servant leaders, the cost of lumber, nails, transporting the wall sections is $21,500. If you, your ministry, your region, or others you know are able to support this work, please encourage them to do so.
  3. Include this in the prayers in your ministry settings, and in your personal prayers.
  4. There are a variety of other ways you can help, whether or not you will be in Houston next summer.  Visit this link and see how you can help!
