"Local Missions" describes our efforts toward people who are geographically close serving people who are geographically close. These ministries serve and bless our own community and region. As people who seek to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we take seriously the command to love our neighbors as ourselves.

ANSELM HOUSE - UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA
Anselm House is a community that’s been serving the University of Minnesota—and the surrounding community—for more than 30 years. Our mission is to connect faith and knowledge with all of life.
We create space for dialogue through discussions and shared meals at our study center. Small groups gather to study books in reading groups. We convene speakers and lecturers for large public events. Scholars across vocations, artists across disciplines, and theologians across denominations come to speak at seminars and lectures that spark dialogues. We offer a curricular program for a small group of students who want to dig even deeper.
