Get to Know Us

Jeffrey Leininger

Faith matters at Concordia-Chicago. It’s part of the Concordia-Chicago difference. Every student is encouraged in their lives of discipleship during their time with us, and is regarded as a child of God, for whom Jesus died.

One of my favorite things is getting to know people. The people!—It’s what I love about Concordia and why I love what I do here! When I see how unique each of our students is, I am reminded of the awesome handiwork of our God.

Concordia’s Spiritual Life Ministry offers many opportunities for students to work with one another and to grow in their vocations as Christians serving a world in need. All students are welcome to be an important part of Spiritual Life and participate in all that it has to offer.
