The Teacher Colloquy Program at Concordia is structured to fit the needs of our workers in the mission field. Many of our candidates hold full time positions at Lutheran organizations and therefore use our partnership with CUEnet to complete their colloquy degree requirements. We work with all colloquy candidates on finding their best coursework fit. The opportunity to connect with frontline workers and to help to ensure the Lutheran theological underpinnings is such a blessing!
