Campus Ministry

All universities and colleges in our LCMS Central Illinois District (CID) have a volunteer contact campus pastor from a nearby LCMS congregation.

CID provides particular support to campus ministry efforts at four state universities (see below). We believe it is very important to give C.A.R.E. to students in college.

Catechizing and Caring for our own
Apologetics (defense of the faith) in the academic square
Reaching out to those who are lost
Engaging a dying culture with Christ.

We Need Contact Information for College Students

If you have students at college, please send their contact information to so we can pass it along to the nearest LCMS U ministry. These ministries cannot serve the spiritual needs of students whom they do not know!
