Campaigns

To fulfill our promise to our students and build upon the tradition of excellence that has defined the Seminary, we invite you to join Generations 20/20: The Campaign for Concordia Seminary. Your support will help ensure that future generations will be served by faithful, relevant, and relational pastors who share the Gospel message in ways that advance the great Commission.

Generations 20/20

Concordia Seminary launched the Generations 20/20 Campaign Jan. 1, 2018, a continuation of the historic Generations Campaign. The three-year campaign’s goals include raising $66 million through 2020 for endowment, annual operations and areas of greatest needs.

The Generations Campaign was the largest campaign in the Seminary’s history with a goal of $180 million. Its focus included building endowment, increasing annual support, renovating the library and investing in learning technology initiatives. The campaign, which began in 2012, formally concluded Dec. 31, 2017, raising more than $200 million.

“The only God-pleasing way for us to move forward is to have total faith, total trust and total confidence that the Lord will move us forward,” Seminary President Dr. Dale A. Meyer said. “All of this is testimony to the fact that the Spirit of God is present anywhere the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is told. There has never been a greater imperative for you and for me and for this Seminary to be the mission of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Work remains. Beyond the dollars raised through the Generations Campaign, the enthusiasm of donors for the Seminary and its commitment to form faithful, caring, effective church leaders for our children, grandchildren and future generations has also been tremendous. Our supporters helped ignite a new stewardship flame, with the hope of engaging even more to do even more in Christ’s name. With God’s blessings, contributions to Generations 20/20 will continue to help make provision for Gospel ministry “throughout all generations.”

Congregational Support

Are you looking for ways your congregation can get involved in the Generations 20/20 Campaign? A Seminary Celebration is an opportunity for congregations to share with their members the important work being done at Concordia Seminary to ensure that future generations will be served by faithful, relevant and relational pastors. We have resources available to help you organize an event. A Seminary Celebration can be held any time, and it’s not limited to just congregations – small groups can host one, too!

Thank you for encouraging your church to host a Seminary Celebration. Your influence and enthusiasm can be the key to help ensure the ongoing preparation of pastors to serve future generations.
