Biographical / Historical

The mission of WELS Campus Ministry Committee is to help WELS college students grow in their faith so that they can reach out to other college students with the gospel. Campus Ministry also supports full- and part-time campus pastors, and provides helps for WELS congregations as they reach out to college students in their areas.

This collection dates back to 1977, though the majority of the collection is information from the 1980s. During these days Campus Ministry was very much a new concept. Since these early days, the field has grown to 550 campus ministries of varying types in 2014. This collection offers a valuable insight into how Campus Ministry grew in its foundational years


Records are arranged by document type, in ascending chronological order, as possible

Custodial History

The custodial history of the collection is unknown. Materials were received in very good condition, and only a few documents had faded ink and needed to be copied.


The records in this collection cover only a portion of the history and work of the Campus Ministry Committee. Since Campus Ministry continues to grow in the WELS, additional accruals are anticipated.
