Campus pastor, Rev. Emily Tveite shares exciting news about how you are supporting the campus ministry at UW-Madison:
New Faith & Vocation Fellows Grow in Faith, Serve in Local Ministries
This year, we are excited to introduce our first cohort of Faith & Vocation Fellows. These four young women and men will spend about 10 hours each week working in partner ministry sites related to their career interests. They will also gather each Sunday afternoon to support one another, pray together, and grow in their faith.
Lutheran Campus Ministry’s generous donors raised $10,000 to fund this program, which was matched by the Siebert Lutheran Foundation. These funds provide monthly stipends to our fellows and honoraria for guest presenters. We ask for your prayers for these students as they grow in faith and serve their neighbors.
- Addison from Ontario, WI will work with Luther Memorial Church on Youth Ministry.
- Logan from Corcoran, MN will work with UW Hospital on public health education.
- Rylie from Green Bay, WI will work with Bethel Food Pantry & the Badger Caring Closet.
- Sarah from Oregon, WI will work with the Lutheran Office for Public Policy in Wisconsin.
Lutheran Campus Ministry alleviates student hunger with daily community meal.
Did you know that Lutheran Campus Ministry serves a community lunch each day during the academic year? Last year we served over 20 thousand meals to hungry students for less than $1 per meal. This year, we are hoping to do even more through a new partnership with Second Harvest Foodbank. You get a glimpse of the lunch by watching the University Health Service’s Video about the lunch.
Hunger and homelessness are an increasing problem on university campuses. The Wisconsin HOPE Lab studied basic needs insecurity among students in 2018 and found that one in three students at 4-year universities has experienced some kind of hunger.
