Welcome to Body and Soul UChicago Campus Ministry!

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice  and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free, and break every yoke?”

  "The narrative is not just that we are serving campus ministry and the UChicago campus, but that also our reach goes beyond and impacts the congregations that we are to be in relationship with, which in turn is the call for us to go out because of the Holy Spirit and the Love that we receive at the Table. But not just for us to walk out the doors of the church, but for us to DO"

  "What is important to me is that instead of just succeeding in the end game of simply becoming a Lutheran Pastor, the end game as one of my Elder's stated so clearly is serving and transforming this world, not only now but beyond. My voice needs to be heard and understood as the continuing song of my Ancestors, who have charged me with the responsibility to continue to fight against inequality and violence."  The Rev. Kwame Pitts, Body and Soul UChicago Campus Ministry's Pastor

 Being involved in Campus Ministry is more than just Worship, but as Bonhoeffer states clearly "As much as the Christian would like to remain distant from political struggle..the commandment of love urges the Christian to stand up for their neighbor." Understanding social location of where we are, and who is and isn't represented,Body and Soul UChicago Campus Ministry is called to live out our faith, not to hold it in, but to push forward and be that public example of the work that Christ has led us into.

Today’s students.
Tomorrow’s leaders.

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free"  This is what we are called to do, as siblings in Christ and Faith, and to be the public Church.
