Synod Campus Ministries

Campus ministry invites people in academic settings to fellowship, worship & bible study. It provides a safe place to build leadership skills as well as discover and fulfill their vocation as disciples.

Kristen Wold, Campus Director –

A trip to a cathedral, synagogue and mosque invited students to more fully understand their neighbors. Christian, Jewish and Muslim students all traveled together to learn about each other and their different faiths.

Michael Short, Campus Pastor –

No stereotypical beaches and beverages for students from UW-Platteville.
Their spring break service trips have them working in shelters, aiding persons
with HIV, preparing and serving meals. In a nutshell, being Christ in the world.



Emily Tveite, Campus Pastor –

As the first campus ministry site in the country, there is a long history of deep
and rich ministry. Bread and wine are shared, prayers are spoken,
faith is nurtured. Campus disciples are sent.
