Dr. Gard Accepts Call to
Concordia University Chicago

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTS)—The Rev. Dr. Daniel L. Gard, professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana, has accepted the call to serve as President of Concordia University Chicago (CUC), which was extended to him on May 30, 2014.

“It is with both joy and sadness that we recognize Dr. Daniel Gard’s acceptance of the call to serve as President of Concordia University, Chicago,” commented CTS President Dr. Lawrence R. Rast Jr. “What a great blessing for Dr. Gard, his family and the CUC community. He will have the opportunity to grow in his service to The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and CUC will be the recipient of his excellent leadership and pastoral care. We at Concordia Theological Seminary will certainly miss our dear friend and colleague. Since 1989, when he joined the CTS faculty, Dr. Gard has served faithfully as a professor in our Pastoral and Exegetical Theology Departments, as well as leading our Military Chaplaincy Program. More than that, he has taken seriously his role in forming servants in Jesus Christ who teach the faithful, reach the lost and care for all.”

Dr. Gard will assume his duties at CUC in August. Please join us as we keep Dr. Gard and his family in our prayers as he transitions to his call at CUC.
