Weird and Faithful 2018
In 2016, I announced the beginning of a new annual event - Weird and Faithful. Each year LuMin in St. Cloud will scout out a person, lay or ordained, who is doing something that is both weird and faithful in ministry and bring them to St. Cloud to share their experiences with students, alumni, and supporters of campus ministry. For one afternoon, people from all areas of our church’s life can share a meal and consider how God might be nudging them outside of their boxes.
On October 14, Dr. Jake Sorenson, a practical theologian and researcher who finds joy in bringing scholarly attention to ministry especially experiential ministry, will be coming to Salem Lutheran Church in St. Cloud, MN to present on his latest research project. He set out, along with Dr. Roland Martinson, to discover exactly what Lutheran Campus Ministry looks like across the country and what it offers to students and the larger church alike. The research has taken over two years to complete and is the largest study of its kind. Come and hear what Jake has discovered about the character of campus ministry in our Church.
