Get InvolvedCSP Ministry and Spiritual Life

Faith & Learning

Part of a Concordia education means exploring your faith – reaching beyond the walls of the church to get involved, exploring your beliefs, and becoming a servant-leader. As a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) institution, our approach is distinctly Lutheran, but we also understand that many faith traditions converge on our campus. We strive to make every student feel welcome and accepted, whatever your beliefs.

"The theology department at CSP is top-notch, and many times at seminary I have found my classes to be a review because I was prepared so well at Concordia."
