The Lutheran Campus Ministry offers many leadership opportunities. Lutheran Campus Ministry programs are planned and run by students (with the help of Pastor Gail), and we’re always looking for new Peer Ministers. You can also help share God’s love and inspire young people by joining the LCM as a board member. Share food, laughter, discussion, and spiritual growth all in the context of sharing the gospel with the next generation of our church leaders. We hope that you will find a place to belong and to serve with.

Samuel Mbaja | Program Assistant
My name is Samuel Mbaja. I come from Mfangano Island on Lake Victoria in Kenya. I am a graduate student in social policy (educational policy) with particular interest in the use of technology to educate children/adults with various categories of disabilities in East Africa. I am also a social justice advocate for marginalized groups in Kenya, where I work with other like-minded people and groups to promote social peace in order to create an enabling environment for economic activities aimed at lifting the standards of living of poor people of whom people with disabilities are the majority.
As a person preparing for a life of ministry, I cherish the weekly spiritual nourishment that I partake of at the Sunday service and the Wednesday Bible studies. Community outreach programs initiated by LCM/Office of Engagement Programs have greatly enhanced my confidence as an educator and would-be minister by giving me the opportunity to work with groups from low-income backgrounds around Syracuse University. I tutor newly arrived young refugees in basic math and English language skills in preparation for their entering mainstream American educational system- an experience that is more fulfilling than any other activity I have ever engaged in.
Yunxin Christina Wu | Communications Director
As an international student from Shanghai, China, I have been in the United States since 2006. I am the Communications Director of LCM/STEP Center. I started interning here in the summer of 2012. Currently, I supervise the database project, website redesign and social media. Lutheran Campus Ministry is an inclusive community that supports people from different religious belief and ethnic backgrounds to come together, to share ideas and to support each other. I enjoy participating in events like SULSA gathering, Vanderkamp Retreat, Pie Baking for the poor, and Ten Tons of Love etc.
