Lindenwood University has a medley of different campus ministries well equipped to meet your unique needs as a student. Most of the groups listed below offer at least one or two weekly opportunities to meet together to study God’s Word and enjoy fellowship with one another.
Athletes In Action
Today, many college athletes are seeking ultimate satisfaction in life through grades, sports, relationships, and partying. Unfortunately, when the excitement wears off, many athletes are left disillusioned, empty, and feeling alone. Many have never heard or do not realize that true worth, real meaning, lasting peace, and ultimate satisfaction come only from a personal relationship with Jesus. Athletes in Action’s campus ministry exists to boldly proclaim the love and truth of Jesus Christ to every college athlete in the U.S. and the millions they influence. Athletes in Action at Lindenwood desires to bring the good news to every college athlete on campus and build a movement of spiritual multiplication.

Campus Outreach desires to help students find answers to their spiritual questions. If you have ever questioned whether the Bible was real, whether God is knowable, or how to have a relationship with him we would love to help you. We meet Wednesday nights from 9–10 p.m. in order to answer some of these questions and have fun together.

Catholic Student Union/Newman Center
CSU is a welcoming faith community and a place of Catholic formation and of hospitality to students of all faiths. We offer service and leadership experiences, spiritual guidance and faith development, as well as social and recreational opportunities. We strive - through education, service, and a worshipping community that seeks to know and become Christ - to form students intellectually, morally, socially, and spiritually according to the wisdom of the Catholic Church, so that they become active participants in parish life and moral and spiritual leaders in the Church and society for the 21st century. We are a ministry that has formed a tradition of lovingly engaging the campus and community, and welcome all searching to know and experience Christ.

We are college-age men and women who are at once wrestling to become who they are (through school or work or life experience), and to connect with God. You’ll probably find people who are in all kinds of stages of both pursuits: self-discovery and God-discovery.

Every year we take students to the Missouri Fall Getaway in October and to the Denver Christmas Conference over Christmas break.

Knights of Columbus
We are a Catholic Organization devoted to the four core principles. Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup kitchens and food pantries, by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and materially, mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.
