Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry at AU

Faith and learning go hand-in-hand at Augustana University. Campus Ministry supports students as they ask questions, explore vocation, as well as discover more about themselves and the world God made.

  • As a university of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), Augustana is rooted in a particular Christian tradition, while also being radically open to those who are not of that tradition. All are welcome, wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
  • A rhythm of daily worship grounds the campus community and gives worshippers practice for how to live and serve as God’s people. Chapel services lift up a variety of theological perspectives and musical styles.
  • Campus pastors are available for prayer, vocational discernment and spiritual care.
  • Programming is student-led and includes regular opportunities for Bible studies, service, faith conversation and leadership development.
