The Alleluia Lutheran Student Ministry, located just west of the Arizona State University (ASU) campus in Tempe, is a small religious community that primarily serves ASU and local community college students. Reaching college students — often-times considered part of the “unchurched” segment of American society — is a key goal for many modern congregations, and different organizations employ different strategies.
Activities and Schedule
Sunday worship services at 11 a.m. attract approximately 40 people each week. The weekly schedule of cell group meetings draws a total of over 100 worshippers at different times. The church sponsors a variety of activities, including potluck dinners and English lessons for international students.
The membership is mostly young (between eighteen and twenty-five years old) and Anglo-American. Numbers have stayed roughly the same since the church began its transition to the cell group format.
