Protestant and Ecumenical Outreach
Campus Ministry’s Protestant and Ecumenical Outreach was created to serve students, faculty and staff of all Christian traditions, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We seek to grow closer to God through prayer, bible study, fellowship and worship services. In accordance with the university’s mission of encouraging learning, educating the whole person, and the service of faith and the promotion of justice, we strive to meet the spiritual needs of the LMU community and further develop our faith in Jesus Christ.
The LMU Multifaith Outreach welcomes students, faculty, and staff of all religious backgrounds and spiritual beliefs. Our goal is to create a vibrant community of individuals desiring to grow in their faith journeys and learn from the diverse faith experiences of others. We strive to meet the spiritual needs of the LMU Community by promoting inter-religious understanding.
