Faith in Action

“Our faith is a living, busy, mighty, active thing.” – Martin Luther

Spiritual Life and Campus Ministry Groups

Faith Expression Groups

Faith Expression Groups are student led groups supported by the Spiritual Life and Campus Ministry office and the student Service and Leadership Team (SALT). The groups assist students to focus their faith as they share it through service to the world, education about faith traditions and issues of justice and advocacy, and personal expression through dance, music, and the growth of personal relationships.

Peer Helpers
Peer Helpers is a ‘pastoral care’ style program whose aim it is to build deeper, broader, and more supportive community through the volunteer work of Wartburg students who are trained in communication, listening, and decision making skills. Students reach out formally and informally with these skills as they caringly accompany peers through life’s joys and challenges.

Center for Community Engagement
The Center for Community Engagement is Wartburg’s “front door” to the community. If you want to get involved in putting your faith in action off campus this is the place to go.
