Campus Ministry is Here for You

Campus Ministry exists to be a “Space for Grace” on the campus of PLU. Outside of The University Congregation, University Chapel and our Small Groups, we can help connect students to faith-based clubs, studies, lectures, literature, local congregations and pastoral care and counseling.

Pastoral Care

The University Pastor is available to the entire PLU community for one-on-one pastoral care. Contact Pastor Jen at or 253-535-7465.

Every minister has different education and life experience, and is able to connect and help people in different ways. For students seeking someone of a different background, we have a growing roster of Partner Chaplains who volunteer their time to provide pastoral care.

Partner Chaplains are available by making an appointment with the Campus Ministry Office.

Wild Hope Center for Vocation

How will you live your life? What is God calling you to do with your gifts and talents? At PLU, we seek to help each student find their vocation, or calling in life, in whatever occupation that may be in.

We invite you to check our the Wild Hope Center for Vocation for help in discerning your life’s work.
