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.


“Finding a faithful and active church has played a pivotal role in my college experience. At St. John’s, I found a church full of loving, caring, and confessional people, led by pastors with the same attributes. All of the worship and fellowship opportunities have brought me back each Sunday as well as Wednesday nights for classes and services, and the connections I’ve made will last for the rest of my life.” Josh Brandmahl, WU Senior

You are Invited to Join Us!
