Update Post-Trip

It’s been a few months now since I completed my bicycle ride across America on behalf of the Lutheran Campus Mission Association.  Thanks to the generosity of many supporters over $15,000 was raised for campus ministry!

Riding my bicycle across the United States was tremendously rewarding – but even more rewarding is knowing the difference that all of you are making in the lives of college age young adults. It’s estimated that there are about 80 million young people aged 18-30 in the United States. According to recent figures, more than 21 million—a record number—are enrolled in U.S. colleges and universities. The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has described the people in this group as less religious than previous generations: one in four—the highest proportion ever—is unaffiliated with any particular faith; and many of these left a religion in which they were brought up, often during their college years.


College and young adulthood are a crossroads—a time when a person’s faith can be challenged and allowed to weaken…  or be awakened, stretched and built up. And this is the Lutheran Campus Mission Association’s call to mission.  Please continue to help with your donation to LCMA in 2013!
