“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity” — 1 Timothy 4:12

College students and their spiritual life are an important part of Trinity Lutheran Church. At Trinity, we help college students connect with Christ and each other through networking with Christian friendships, Bible studies, fun events, worship services, private spiritual counsel, prayer support, and sharing their faith.

Busy college students are in a unique position and especially in need of Christian support with the truth of God’s Word. We offer many on and off-campus events such as adopt-a- college student, pizza parties, care packages, various Bible studies, fellowship events, and community service projects.

This Campus Ministry will help support your home congregation and also connect you to God’s Word and Christian friends for those who stay in the Waukesha area for those weekends away from home.


WELS Waukesha Campus Ministry

Trinity Lutheran Church also supports WELS Waukesha Campus Ministry that meets on the Campus of Carroll University (in room #107 of the Ganfield Gym 221 N. Barstow Road Waukesha). As of the Spring of 2018, our group became an official registered student organization of Carroll. Starting in September, this group made up of 20-30 young men and women come together led by Pastor Oelhafen for monthly Bible studies, mixers, study snacks, service opportunities, games, movie nights, rides to church, and networking with fellow Christians as they learn how to apply the love of Christ to their life. It’s free and fun, supported by our congregation. Follow our Facebook page for our next exciting event or contact Pastor O (262-442-8568) to be added to our mailing list. Invite any friends or roommates to join us. All are welcome!
