Synod Ministries

Ministry Partners are organizations that operate and are governed outside of the Rocky Mountain Synod, but are affiliated with the synod and are considered ministries of the synod. Ministry Partners include colleges, universities, seminaries, health ministries, service organizations, and outdoor ministries.

As ministry in a college setting, Lutheran Campus Ministry Network continues the church’s commitment to young adults who grew up in Lutheran congregations, welcoming them and students of other backgrounds.  We journey with them as they are searching, learning and discovering God’s love and call in their lives.
