The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road.”  â€” Luke 10:1-4

Celebrating the 169th Academic Year at
Concordia Theological Seminary

The start of this 169th academic year is an exciting time as faculty and students gather for the study of theology, especially the proclamation of Christ crucified and risen for the eternal salvation of sinners. We rejoice that the Holy Spirit continues to draw faithful men and women from congregations across The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and world into our pastoral and deaconess programs so that they may be formed as servants in Jesus Christ who teach the faithful, reach the lost, and care for all.

First-year students come to Concordia Theological Seminary seeking to receive the best possible preparation for service in the Lord’s kingdom. Feeling blessed and excited to answer the call, they leave their homes, churches, friends, and careers, trusting in God’s care to protect and provide for them on the journey.

Their comprehensive education comes at a great price. Your seminary remains committed to providing the highest possible level of preparation for future servants of Jesus Christ, even while we strive to improve their economic well-being.

Truly the harvest is plentiful and Concordia Theological Seminary continues to provide workers for the harvest field. Your generous gifts to Concordia Theological Seminary make possible the proclamation of Christ’s life-saving message into our changing world. As members of His body, the church, we boldly share in the mission to form servants in Jesus Christ who teach the faithful, reach the lost, and care for all. Please join us TODAY by considering a generous gift in support of Concordia Theological Seminary’s work to form servants for our changing world.
