Confidential, on-campus, scriptural counseling is provided by our Campus Pastor, John Boeder, whose office is located in the upper level of the Luther Student Center near the student mailboxes. The Vice president for Student Life, Pastor Jeffrey Schone, is also ready to listen and help.
Our Campus Pastor and VP for Student Life also make counseling referrals to area Christian counseling services. Trained and experienced WELS/ELS counselors who can offer clinical counseling services to the students of our college, often meeting with students on our campus. Sessions at the counseling service offices and online sessions are also available.
MLC does not want financial constraints to become an obstacle for students to benefit from counseling services. For this reason the college is able to assist full-time, degree program students with counseling costs. The VP for Student Life can help with this. Those who would benefit from these services need referral from Campus Pastor Boeder or Vice president Schone.
If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! (Eccl. 4:10)
Jesus said, “If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven…” (John 20:22)
If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.” (Matt. 18:15)
