Church Work Programs

Concordia University, St. Paul has been preparing students for service to God and humanity as professional church workers for nearly 125 years. The opportunities for our church work graduates are plentiful. At the end of the spring semester 2014, there were currently two job openings for every eligible LCMS placement graduate! With the life skills you will gain as part of our church work programs you will be more prepared than ever to serve the church with the theological and relational skills to faithfully lead the church of today and tomorrow.

Our church career faculty experts in Lutheran theology, church history and ministry. We also offer daily chapel and ministry opportunities, mission and service-learning trips, clubs and organizations that meet your interests, and much more! And being in the middle of a metropolitan area gives Concordia church work students real-world ministry experience that you won't find at any other university.
