Campaign goal

To raise $170,000

Make a gift to the Brammer Chapel Capital Campaign

Foundational capital and program needs:

CHAPEL PROGRAM BUDGET $25,000 / YEAR / 3 YEARS $75,000
This gift would provide gap funding for chapel and spiritual life programing until the college is able to fully fund these essential services from our general fund.

BAPTISMAL FONT WATER WALL $50,000
As Baptism is central to the Christian life, the Baptismal Font Water Wall will be a very visible and striking reminder of our baptismal calling as one enters the Brammer Chapel.

PERFORMANCE GRAND PIANO (used) $50,000
From accompanying our choir, leading the singing of hymns,or backing up the jazz worship band—a high-quality piano will take center stage in the chapel.

100 CHAIRS AT $250 EACH $25,000
These modern yet timeless chairs provide comfortable seating for chapel worship and community events.

SOUND SYSTEM $15,000
A good sound system goes unnoticed but creates an environment where participants can connect to the music and message. It also allows students to gain hands on experience in state of the art worship technology.

SYSTEM FOR HANGING ART $5,000
This system of rails and movable walls/partitions in our art gallery space allows for a wide range of displays of visual art—from students, alumni, and other artists.

BANNERS $100
Provide students and staff the materials and creativity to design seasonal materials

HYMNALS AND BIBLES $50
Each Bible or hymnal will carry a bookplate with the name of the person honored or memorialized

MATCHING FUNDS AVAILABLE
The first $25,000 in gifts to this campaign given by Trinity / LBI Alumni will be matched thanks to a generous gift from Trinity board member Donel Pederson and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

About spiritual life at Trinity Lutheran College

The Trinity Lutheran College community centers around worship, prayer, learning, and service. Engaging our Christian faith in traditional and creative ways, we share the common purpose of equipping one another for lives that serve Jesus Christ.

The worship life at Trinity is an experiential learning laboratory, where emerging leaders are living out their faith in authentic and innovative ways that will shape tomorrow’s church. The Trinity community is engaged in this shared mission, and together—students, faculty, staff, guests, and friends—we join in the work of making disciples, discerning vocations, and seeking to proclaim the Gospel in a manner that is meaningful and powerful in our complex and ever-changing world.


“The Brammer Chapel is designed to be a vital part of our living-learning community, a hands-on laboratory where students can engage in the art of creating and curating worship—communicating the timeless message of Jesus in innovative ways to reach emerging generations.” Campus Pastor Erik Samuelson


“This is a place where we can 'do life together' and get in touch with God’s purposes for our lives.” First Year Student


“I’m standing here thinking about all the creative ways we could use this space. I’m envisioning art, sculpture, music…the gears are turning. I’m coming back in the fall with a plan.” Third Year Student


“I’m excited about the openness of the space, the amazing acoustics and the infinite possibilities for worship in a multitude of styles.” Fourth Year Student


“I’ve been involved with running sound and video at my church, but I’ve been thinking about how to take it to another level. I’d like to propose an independent study course around worship technology and communication using the Brammer Chapel as my learning laboratory.” Third Year Student
