Spiritual Life and Campus Ministry Purpose Statement (based on JN 17:20-23)

As part of God’s mission, Spiritual Life and Campus Ministry is the body of Christ on the Wartburg campus, formed as disciples by the Holy Spirit, and sent to embody God’s active persistent love within all creation.

Wartburg is an inclusive Christian College where all are received as beloved by God. The division of spiritual life and campus ministry coordinates faith opportunities for students, faculty, and staff.

Wartburg is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and our ministry includes people from many different Christian, and non Christian, backgrounds.

While the college has a Christian identity we will not tell you what to believe. Instead we will learn from one another as the Holy Spirit guides us.
