Testimonial Mary

Last year I was a freshman facing all the typical freshman problems. I missed home, campus was too big, and it was hard to make new friends. At several points over the year I considered dropping out at summer. But by chance I found LuMin and it opened up so many doors. This ministry and its members became my home away from home and helped me survive my freshman year. I believe God led me to LuMin to help me through the hard times and give me guidance to improve my future. Through LuMin, I have gotten to know God in a more personal manner and have found lots of friends along the way.

Testimonial Jo

I did not come from a Lutheran background. My family and I switched around to a lot of different Christian denominations searching for one that fit. We found one that stuck, but after a few years of going there, we stopped going to church at all. I still had God in my life, but no community with which to share in God’s blessings. Prior to coming to UT, I made a goal to join a Christian organization. I tried out a couple different ones, still searching for that perfect fit. I found just what I was looking for when my friend Ellen invited me to try out Lutheran Campus Ministry. I was a little shy at first, not quite ready to engage in discussion about beliefs, since I had no experience with Lutheranism and didn’t want to say something “wrong” or “dumb”. But instead of scrutiny or judgement, I found a group of welcoming and accepting people who wanted to hear what I had to say. We are students with a greater purpose, a purpose to reach out through the arms of Christ and share the blessings we have been given. Not only has this group made an impact on my life at college, but through the values and mindset I have learned here, it will continue to drive the way I live.

Testimonial Tom

I've been attending LuMin ever since I came to UT, and I've always found it to be an incredibly welcoming place. Not only has it provided me with an opportunity to continue worship and keep up my faith, but it has given me an amazing group of people to hang out and share problems with. The Tuesday night dinners have been some of the times at UT that I feel the most at home, providing a home-cooked meal in a family setting. The Sunday services feel simultaneously the same and different to a regular Lutheran church, as it follows a similar structure but is made unique by the talents of the students. My experience at UT has definitely been enhanced by my time with LuMin.
