Pastor Timothy Patoka: WELS Campus Ministry and You

Connecting Christ with campus. It's easy to say and wanted by all, but how do you do it? WELS Campus Ministry helps you do this. Come and learn what campus ministry is, why it is needed, how WELS conducts it, and how you can support and encourage it.

Tim Patoka serves at Grace Lutheran Church in Tucson, AZ where he has been the campus pastor for WELS Tucson Campus Ministry since 2016. Pastor Patoka has also served on the WELS Campus Ministry Committee since 2021. He and his wife, Katie, enjoy hiking and soaking in Tucson's city vibes.

Mission and Freewill Offerings:

Board Recommended Mission Offering:       Project #HM-2024-10: WELS Campus Ministry 

Students on our college campuses are often faced with many new choices, not all God-pleasing. During their college years, students are often living away from home for the first time; it is critical for them to have guidance from God’s Word that is both meaningful and practical for daily living. The Campus Ministry Committee (CMC) provides resources, support, and encouragement to WELS congregations that serve college students around the United States and Canada. One of the main ways the CMC assists congregations is by maintaining a synod-wide database of college students to help campus pastors reach and serve students while they are at college. The CMC also provides materials for campus pastors and congregations, funding for new ministry initiatives and ongoing ministries, counsel to ministries requesting assistance, and opportunities for campus pastors to grow spiritually and to network ideas through regular staff conferences. Your gifts will help assist campus pastors and congregations reach out and serve these young people on college campuses with the Word of God.

Freewill Offering:   Mission to the Children 

Mission to the Children seeks to share the good news of the forgiveness of sins that comes through Jesus Christ our Savior to our brothers and sisters in northern Mexico and southern Tucson, AZ.  In addition, Mission to the Children provides families with food, hygiene supplies, and school necessities each year.
