Concordia Seminary’s mission is to prepare the church’s future pastors, deaconesses, missionaries and teachers – and you make that mission possible. Your prayers and financial gifts are essential to the success of our programs.

There are many ways to give and to create a lasting impact on the lives and ministries of our future church leaders. We look forward to your partnership in support – truly, your partnership in ministry – for the sake of the Gospel!

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:20-21 ESV

Mission Works: Thanks to Donors

In this 28th episode of “Mission Works: Thanks to Donors,” Concordia Seminary President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer, the program’s host, breaks down the funding pie of the Seminary with Chief Financial Officer Chad Cattoor. The two men discuss how the institution is adjusting its funding model to be on firm footing for the future. “Gift income is going down as a result of an aging donor base,” Cattoor says. “We have worked very hard at building the Seminary’s endowment. … Our goal is to continue to increase that.” Meyer adds, “This is significant because, if the donor base of the LCMS continues to be called to heaven, the gift income amount of the pie is going to continue to shrink and yet the mission has to go forward. Endowments are critical to filling what looks like is going to be an income gap.”
