Mission of the Colloquy Program
To provide an education in the basics of Lutheranism to ensure teachers in the Lutheran School System understand the theological underpinnings of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and thereby function more effectively as a teacher in the classroom within the Lutheran system.
Those teachers seeking enrollment on the Minister of religion (Commissioned) roster of the LCMS typically undertake eight classes.
These courses are designed to immerse the participants in the course material presented to students in the various Concordia's of the Concordia University System, and these modules afford students the opportunity to build on whatever knowledge they may have already acquired in the subject areas.
The eight courses of the Colloquy program are the following:
- Old Testament
- New Testament
- History of Theology and the Church
- Lutheran Confessions
- Christian Doctrine
- Varieties of Belief
- The Lutheran Teacher I
- The Lutheran Teacher II
