Campus Ministry here in the Metro D.C. Synod is vibrant and healthy.

Our synod supports campus ministry because we realize that our local universities bring a large opportunity for ministry and service. “We have more than twenty colleges and universities on the territory of the synod numbering over 350,000 students,” says the Rev. Tom Omholt, Lutheran Chaplain for American University students. “During these four very impressionable years of campus living enters the support and encouragement of Lutheran Campus Ministry.”

Campus ministry is sponsored at the following locations. Locations of campus ministry across the country can be found on this elca.org list. Additionally, use your campus’ zip code to find a congregation close to campus.
