“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may
proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” ~1 Peter 2:9
You are on a journey, a quest for knowledge about yourself, about the world (seen and unseen) and how these things fit together in the hopes of discovering what you specifically are called to do in this world. One of the things that makes us—and your program of study—unique is the Concordia Distinctive, our focus on developing Christian leaders. As a Lutheran institution, our Lutheran ethos – the history, theology, and practice that comes out of our faith tradition – shapes our understanding of a liberal arts education (what we teach) and influences pedagogy (how we teach).Our goal is to graduate women and men who transform communities by seeking out leadership opportunities and influencing people for Christ.
