  1. Concordia Seminary has been a great place to learn and grow throughout my most formative years in pastoral training and learning.

  2. It is always a great time to be at Concordia Seminary. Especially right now, they offer free tuition!

  3. Concordia (Saint Louis) is the flagship seminary of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, founded in the 1800’s. The other seminary is in Fort Wayne (IN) which is also an excellent seminary from what people tell me. (I graduated almost 10 years ago.) It has a long history of turning out capable, Gospel-led pastors. The pastoral formation is rigorous: practical, theological, spiritual. Greek and Hebrew. The MDIV is reserved for those going into Lutheran ministry, but other deonminational students can get master and other academic degrees there. There are also distance-learning options and excellent programs for Hispanic and ethnic pastors. I strongly recommend it and I think it should rate among the highest in the nation for the overall program.
