We are a campus site of Nebraska Lutheran Campus Ministries, an agency of the Nebraska Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Our mission is to invite those in the academic setting to know Christ and the community that bears His name.


Hearing and learning God’s Word together in old, new, creative, and beautiful ways.


Asking tough questions, wrestling with our faith, and being open to the way God moves in this world.


Discovering our call to embody the love of Christ and learning how to best live out the Gospel.


Equipping young adults to be the church for the sake of our community and the world.

We journey with students as they encounter questions and doubt during a transitional season in life.
