The Friend's Board
The Campus Ministry Center is place composed of separate, yet complimentary ministries.
"Lutheran Campus Ministry," (L.C.M.) is a distinct ministry that exists to support Ridgewater students in all aspects of their lives. LCM continues a rich tradition of expressing a unique and grace-filled Lutheran presence at the Campus Ministry Center. LCM is funded by the generous donations of individuals, church partners and 153/15 supporters.
"Willmar Area United Campus Ministry," (U.C.M.) is a separate ministry which functions independently of L.C.M.. Willmar Area United Campus Ministry maintains a distinct ecumenical and theological presence at the Campus Ministry Center. We are funded by area churches and 153/15 plan members.
L.C.M. and U.C.M. contributions are not shared or pooled together. Both ministries are responsible for raising their own funds.
The Campus Ministry Center is governed by an ecumenical ministry board called the "Friend's Board." The Friend's Board is made of up members of the L.C.M. and U.C.M. boards respectively. They are responsible for ensuring continuity of ministry, programing, and management of the physical premises. Each board, LCM and UCM pay rent every month to the Friend's Board.
It is our goal to provide the highest quality of ministry to the students and staff of Ridgewater College possible. We endeavor, where possible to work side by side to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and ecclesiastical unity that brings glory to God.
Grace and Peace!
