Rev. Brian Wrobel, campus pastor at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, and some of their campus ministry students.
WELS began its first campus ministry in 1920 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. One hundred years later, WELS campus ministries have grown to reach students across the country and even the globe. We travel to the campus ministry at the University of Florida, where we hope to show that campus ministry work can be done even by congregations of modest size and with minimal WELS student populations. Students will share obstacles and opportunities in reaching out with the gospel to students who attend colleges and universities, which are often bridges to the world and marketplaces of ideas.
