College Ministry

At the heart of our ministry is the St. Olaf College Student Congregation, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It is our mission to provide worship, study, and service opportunities for students, faculty, and staff.

There are many ways to get involved with the student congregation: worship at Boe Memorial Chapel, enjoy a community meal, engage in a learning opportunity, or participate in “The Big Three” events — our fall speaker, January retreat, and spring service project.

In addition to the ministry offered by the St. Olaf Student Congregation, students offer a wide variety of both Christian and Interfaith organizations. Each religious group offers a variety of worship and educational opportunities.

As a College of the Church, St. Olaf College places value on the study and practice of religion. We invite you to explore, to ask questions, and to grow in your faith.
