Campus Ministry Impact - Andrew Limmer

Hi. My name is Andrew Limmer. I graduated from UW-Milwaukee in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Conservation & Environmental Science.

My journey through college filled with God’s blessings and ultimately his plan for me was way better than I ever imagined. I began college with what I thought was a great plan for my life. I was an electrical engineering student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. It was a great school, great people and my career outlook was even greater. However, as classes ended for the first year I knew something wasn’t right. This is where God through The Point of Grace was able to bring me back on track.

After God placed me in numerous volunteer opportunities with the WI DNR and conservation organizations I realized it was time for a switch in majors and schools. This was a tough decision. Not only would it take longer to graduate it would add to the already mounting student debt. After much prayer I realized it was the right decision to switch to UWM.

Looking back God placed me there so that I could be integral part of campus ministry in Milwaukee. I had the pleasure of serving as a house fellow for 3 years and serving among some of God’s great people. The campus ministry there was a safe place that helped guide me through my tough times as a student, I can’t imagine being where I am today without it. Shortly after graduation he blessed me a with a great career path and I currently serve as a Regional Director with National Wild Turkey Federation in Peoria, Illinois.

Campus ministry has played such a significant role in my journey with God that I am a firm believer in its value and continued existence. The leaders that are in place at TPOG have been blessed with great gifts and I thank God frequently for placing them in my life. The chance to gather with people your own age in a comfortable place near campus is invaluable. 

I hope and pray that the ministry there continues to thrive and a be a safe haven for all college students in the Milwaukee area.
