Augustana University (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) welcomes applications and nominations for the position of Campus Pastor.

The Campus Pastor grounds the university’s mission to “integrate faith with learning and service.” As an institution of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), campus values and practices are rooted in theological concepts such as grace, humility, freedom, mystery, and vocation as service to the neighbor.

Qualified applicants must be ordained individuals, rostered and in good standing with the ELCA, and should have at least 3-5 years of ministry experience. A thorough understanding of Lutheran theology and imagination for integrating faith with learning is imperative. The ability to interact with students, faculty and leadership with different backgrounds and points of view, and having a deep appreciation and respect for academic values and culture must be evident and/or significant for the candidate. 

Ideal candidates will be creative and collaborative, curious learners and patient listeners. Exceptional communication and preaching skills are required. Experience in working with youth and young adults is preferred, as is a sense of humor and joyful spirit.

Rooted in the Lutheran tradition, Augustana Campus Ministry welcomes ecumenical and interfaith voices as essential partners in fostering spiritual maturity and religious literacy. This position serves as the steward of interfaith programming on campus, therefore, the Campus Pastor should have a basic understanding of other religious and non-religious traditions and be willing to offer support to non-Christian persons and groups as well. The Augustana University Student Congregation is a Reconciling in Christ congregation, believing that people of all sexual orientations and gender identities have a place at the table of God. Campus Ministry also welcomes people of all ages, races, colors, creeds, ethnic backgrounds and levels of ability to participate fully in its worship services, programs and activities. Central to this welcome is the Campus Pastor’s ability to articulate how and why justice for systemically non-dominant persons is faithfully grounded in Christian theology.

Consistent with the university’s core values and guided by our Lutheran identity as expressed in Rooted & Open: The Common Calling of NECU, diversity, equity and inclusion are deepening commitments of the Augustana community. Varied life experiences and ideological perspectives among students and others on campus make conversations around these commitments both challenging and rewarding. Candidates for the Campus Pastor position must be culturally and interpersonally agile, should lead with a posture of listening to understand, be ready and eager to serve the evolving needs of students and staff, and seek to build community across differences. 

Augustana University is an institution ready and enthusiastic to welcome, love and support a new Campus Pastor.
