Founded in 1846, Concordia Theological Seminary is a graduate school institution of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) whose central purpose is to prepare men for the pastoral ministry as well as men and women for other services in the church. The Seminary’s academic programs offers its students an understanding of the Christian faith that is Christ-centered, Biblically based, confessionally Lutheran and evangelically active. Students are taught by a distinguished faculty who are dedicated to equipping students to serve effectively in an ever-changing world.
