“Mission Works: Thanks to Donors” debuts

Weekly vlog reveals impact of donor support

To celebrate the significant role of its supporters, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis has created a new vlog titled, “Mission Works: Thanks to Donors.”

Weekly episodes, hosted by President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer, will share vignettes that highlight God’s mission at work through stories of real-time campus activities and explore how this mission truly is made possible by the Seminary’s faithful and generous donors.

“We are extremely grateful for our donors and their unwavering commitment to the Seminary’s mission of forming future pastors, deaconesses, missionaries and church leaders,” said Kathleen Luther, executive director of Seminary Support. “We hope this weekly vlog provides a meaningful way for our Seminary partners to catch a glimpse of how their faithful stewardship is affecting day-to-day life at the Seminary.”

In the first episode of “Mission Works,” Meyer shares how Concordia Seminary is an important part of God’s mission.

“Mission works are done through your congregation, through your Seminary, and through you and me,” Meyer says. “Ephesians Chapter 2 tells us that we are saved only by grace through faith, not by our good works. But St. Paul hastens to say that God does have good works for you and me to do. And there is no greater good work than mission, than telling people about Jesus. That is the driving spirit of our Concordia Seminary.”

The “Mission Works: Thanks to Donors” vlog will feature a variety of topics, such as enrollment, academic programs and special projects that depict everyday life in the campus community. Each episode will be approximately five minutes in length and will be available to view on the Seminary’s YouTube channel, at csl.edu/support and at scholar.csl.edu.
