One of Bethany College’s core initiatives on the five-year strategic plan is to institute a Visiting Pastor Program. Bethany recognizes the value of creating relationships with pastors. By honoring their skills and abilities, Bethany wants to recognize the value a pastor can bring to the college community. Therefore, Bethany College is inviting all rostered leaders, including pastors, youth leaders, and church musicians to spend up to three days on the Bethany College campus in Lindsborg, KS.

Once a participant arrives, all related expenses will be covered including a private room in the new dorm and cafeteria meals. Sharing in classroom experiences, playing a part in chapel break, and attending campus events will be opportunities tailored by the participant’s interests.

Potential participants may come from the ranks of Bethany alumni and/or congregations of the Central States, Oklahoma/Arkansas, and Rocky Mountain Synods of the ELCA. However, other individuals from faith communities that support Bethany College’s mission to educate, develop, and challenge individuals to reach for truth and excellence as they lead lives of faith, learning, and service are also encouraged to apply.

Address questions or reserve a date during Bethany’s 2018-2019 academic year by contacting Campus Pastor Amy Truhe at or call (785) 452-0969.

Pastor Truhe will facilitate a date for the visit that fits both the participant’s schedule and the campus calendar. Interested individuals will be given the opportunity to share ideas and tailor a visit while a guest on the Bethany campus.

Bethany looks forward to hearing from you!

With great anticipation,

Rev. Amy Truhe, Campus Pastor
