Hi. I'm Dave from Wittenberg Door Campus Ministry. We're raising support to continue bringing on-site pastoral care to the collegiate communities in Columbia Missouri during 2019.

History, Integrity, Truth, Scripture. These four ideas are at the heart and center of the work of Wittenberg Door Campus Ministry . As a mission project of the American Association of Lutheran Churches , Wittenberg Door Campus Ministry's work is to provide on-site pastoral care to the students, staff, faculty, and administration of the collegiate communities in Columbia, Missouri. 

The Christian message is one of great historical importance.  For almost 2000 years Christians have proclaimed freedom to prisoners of this sinful world through Jesus. 36035408_1546991268358876_r.jpeg

It is part of the integrity of our message that we admit our own failings and challenges. 

We also realize that there is such a thing as objective truth.  It's Christianity's willingness to explore truth and evaluate the claims of different world views which has historically pushed scientific, artistic, literary, and philosophical developments.

Yet, Christians recognize that it is in Scripture alone that we find a definitive revelation of God and His Will. 

We bring this recognition of history, integrity, truth, and Scripture to the academic communities in Columbia, Missouri through on-site pastoral care, Bible discussion groups, and day-to-day friendships with people like those pictured above, in our international gatherings.

Wittenberg Door Campus Ministry is funded by contributions from our supporters, such as theWittenberg Door 300 , our regular contributors. Last year our partners provided the basic operating expenses of this ministry and helped with staff housing to some extent.  During 2019 we wish to include housing and medical care. Notice there's no staff salary there yet? We'll get there eventually.  Please help bring on-site pastoral care to our academic communities. Please help us spread the good news of Jesus to the many nations represented in those communities.

A big thanks to everyone who has been participating in Wittenberg Door Campus Ministry so far this year! We just began the year two weeks ago, but already activities are under way. So far I've preached in three different churches and I've been working on outreach activities on and around the Mizzou campus as we near the end of the Winter Break. Tuesday evenings "Real God, Real Answers" at the Heidelberg (5:30), Thursday noon Bible discussion at the Student Center, and this Friday we have a Dinner/Conversation evening focused on some traditional American games, this time meeting at Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbia. Lots of people are invited to bring a friend and make a friend. Will you join with us and consider supporting WDCM as part of the Wittenberg Door 300? More details at www.wittenbergcomo.com.
