Spiritual Life (SLCM)
“Living the Word of God, Loving all people in His name, Serving God’s children on campus, in our community, to the ends of the earth"
Under the guidance of the campus pastor, a student President heads a team of young Christian leaders who coordinate the many exciting ministries connected with Concordia.
We need you! Whether it’s leading a Bible study, serving the homeless, rebuilding homes in Haiti, teaching English on a mission trip, playing the guitar for a local youth group, or just supporting others in need, students at Concordia make a difference. The life of Christ in them is lived-out in the life of the Church and the World around them.
Faith in action: Concordia offers unique opportunities for our students to become the servant leaders of tomorrow.

Acts 2:42, 44
“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayer… All the believers were together and had everything in common.”

-- Christian fellowship in the word together, in prayer together, in love together.
We are convinced that men need the help and support of other men to grow spiritually mature as the men of God that they were created to be. We aim to create a fellowship of men, a brotherhood, if you will, that looks out for its own and serves and reaches out to others. We seek to accomplish this through enjoying good, wholesome fun and fellowship with one another, delving deeper into God's Word together, and putting what we learn into practice by serving each other here on campus and to the ends of the earth.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-15, 10-11
"And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
Our mission is to provide the means to help girls transform into women of God by supporting them in faith, fellowship, and service, while being centered in Christ.
"The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng."
