Evangelical Lutheran Church Colleges and Universities


The modern Evangelical Lutheran Church was founded over twenty years ago, but its roots go back much further.

In 1988, three branches of the Lutheran faith united to form the Evangelical Lutheran Church. However, the Lutheran faith originally came to America in the mid-17th century. Today, the Church has grown to comprise 4.8 million members and nearly 10,500 congregations.
