Martin Luther Society

Committed Support for Future Church Professionals

Concordia is privileged to have prepared thousands of professional church workers. For more than 150 years, Concordia has remained true to its mission, preparing people to lead lives of service in our Lutheran churches and schools.

In 2000, the Martin Luther Society was formed with the mission to provide support and financial assistance to students pursuing church work. Too often students and families are often unable to cover the cost of four or more years of college education; therefore the Society works to guarantee that financial need will not prevent students from preparing for ministry.
