DCE Field Experience

Through its fieldwork program, Concordia Chicago partners with local congregations  to provide valuable, practical experience for our students while offering support to the educational ministries of local Lutheran congregations. DCE fieldworkers typically spend 4-6 hours per week working in their assigned churches. They assist in the churches’ educational programs by leading Bible studies, helping plan events, giving children’s messages, playing music in worship services, and many other tasks according to the needs of the congregation and their personal gifts.

If you are a local congregation interested in such a partnership, consider applying for a DCE fieldworker.
