Don't let college students slip through the cracks

The devil knows how to strike when the iron is hot. There is perhaps no better time for him to attack than when young adults go off to college. No one is waking them up in the morning to go to church on Sunday. There are plenty of opportunities to forgo a godly lifestyle and experience all the world has to offer. Faith can be tested. Faith can be tried. Faith can even be lost.

That's where WELS Campus Ministry fits in. Part of WELS Home Missions, Campus Ministry exists to provide resources, support, and encouragement to WELS congregations that serve college students around the United States and Canada—a vital ministry at an important time of transition!

Does your congregation support a ministry to college students? This can include supporting congregation members when they go away to college or ministering to students at a local college or university (like the students pictured above who are part of the WELS campus ministry at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas.). If you need resources to help your congregation support college students, take a look through the WELS Campus Ministry Toolkit.

The February "Confessions of Faith" article from Forward in Christ highlights a young person who began attending a WELS church in high school and then helped her congregation begin a campus ministry when she was in college. Read Delaney Leffel's story to hear about the blessings that she's experienced through campus ministry.
