Concordia Seminary, St. Louis earned three awards from the Associated Church Press (ACP) at its May 1 awards dinner in Toronto, Canada. The ACP presented the awards in recognition of the exceptional content produced for Concordia Journal and Concordia Seminary magazine in 2014.
Concordia Journal, the Seminary’s quarterly theological journal, received the prestigious Award of Excellence in the category of Best in Class for print journals. In addition, it obtained the Award of Merit for its website, concordiatheology.org, and its successful promotion of and integration with Concordia Journal.
The third award went to Concordia Seminary magazine, which accepted Honorable Mention for innovative uses of social media and its impact on the Seminary. ACP granted this award in recognition of last year’s successful live tweeting during Call Day, and the resulting engagement shared in the Call Day insert of the summer/fall issue of the magazine.
“The fact that experts within the field recognize the excellence of Concordia Seminary’s theological resources is a testament not only to the good work of faculty and staff, but also to our readership,” said Rev. Travis Scholl, managing editor of theological research and publications. “The awards simply recognize the high value that this global community of church workers, scholars, and laypeople place on the vigorous life of the mind in service to the Gospel.”
The ACP is an interdenominational organization of print and digital publications, individuals, and affiliates across North America. Since 1916, the ACP has shared a common commitment to excellence in journalism as a means to describe, reflect, and support the life of faith and the Christian community.
