Washburn University Campus Ministry

Welcome, Washburn Students!

LCMS University Logo

St. John’s is home to the LCMS U campus ministry for Washburn University in Topeka. If you’re looking for a church to call home while you’re a student, please join us! (And if you have questions about spiritual matters, big or small, get in touch. We’re here for that, too.)

We’ve listed a few resources on this page to get you started, including a description of our Wednesday evening College Students and Young Adults class. The group meets as part of our Sound Words Academy, which offers a 5 p.m. dinner, 7 p.m. worship service, and classes throughout the evening.

“Having a strong Lutheran community as I begin to navigate college has been so encouraging. I love Sunday services, but I also deeply appreciate the fellowship and discipleship offered on Wednesday nights. It’s so nice to have a confessional church and a group of Lutheran peers to connect with and keep me grounded in the faith while in college. I’m so grateful that the faithful pastors of St. John’s have reached out to Washburn.
Blythe Landon, WU Sophomore
