Concordia Seminary has long been a trailblazer when it comes to technology. In 2014, more than 1 million downloads of Seminary-produced materials were made by students, church workers, scholars and researchers here and abroad. The Seminary aims to keep pace with technological advances so on-campus and off-site continuing education programs can effectively be delivered to students and the broader Church.
The Generations Campaign will expand the Seminary’s digital capability and create new avenues for academic endeavor and continuing education. Through library facility upgrades, the Seminary will create a state-of-the-art learning environment for students, ensure our vast collection of precious materials and extensive academic collections are preserved for the future, and create an appealing educational destination.
“The seed to attend Seminary was first planted by my wife’s home church pastor, Rev. Dr. Matthew Rueger, Hubbard, Iowa, during adult instruction. Life moved quickly over the next seven years marriage, house, children, jobs. Still, the pull to ministry continued to grow. After much prayer and heart-to-heart discussions with Jill, I left a successful career in banking to start this new journey. We’ve never looked back.
“Heeding Scripture, we counted the cost for forgoing an income and taking the Seminary plunge.
“Thankfully, financial assistance from Seminary endowments has helped ease these burdens and concerns. Jill and I are grateful for the prayers and generosity of all those who support the Seminary and for the endowment scholarships that make this adventure possible. It has truly been an answer to prayer!”
