Lutheran Campus Ministry Network (LuMin) is a network of inclusive faith communities celebrating God’s love and grace on or near the campuses of over 230 colleges and universities across the United States.

Rooted in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we celebrate our identity while exploring partnerships with other traditions, and welcoming people from any faith background, or no faith background at all.

LuMin sites are served by campus ministry staff members who are theologically trained, credentialed, and well-grounded in ministry with young adults an in higher education.

As ministry in a college setting, Lutheran Campus Ministry Network continues the church’s commitment to young adults who grew up in Lutheran congregations, welcoming them and students of other backgrounds.  We journey with them as they are searching, learning and discovering God’s love and call in their lives.

LuMin engages students in activities, events and projects that help them grow as people of faith, and help them shape the world around them.  Here is just a small sale of what is happening on campuses across the country:
