The following foci of Campus Ministry at Concordia College form the core of the work of the Office of Ministry and are deeply informed by and crafted to support the partnership between the Office of Ministry and Campus Ministry Commission.
In worship and spiritual disciplines, we practice our faith: we gather in community, we hear the Word of God, we experience grace, we are nurtured in faith, and we are sent out into the world to be gathered anew.
At Concordia College, the Office of Ministry strives to encourage, equip, and engage students in practicing their faith and spiritual commitments in communal worship that is creative and innovative, rooted and welcoming.
In study and dialogue, we explore our faith: we ask questions, we invite others into conversation, we interpret in community, we ponder God’s Word, and we are formed, reformed, and transformed in faith.
At Concordia College, the Office of Ministry strives to encourage, equip, and engage students in exploring their faith in dialogue with one another, scripture, and the world so that their faith formation may be deepened and broadened for the journey.
In service and responsible engagement with the world we enact our faith: we seek justice, we walk in solidarity with one another, we practice interdependence and mutuality as we listen to our neighbors, and, with our hands, we participate in God’s continuing work of restoration, reconciliation, and redemption for all creation.
At Concordia College, the Office of Ministry strives to encourage, equip, and engage students in enacting their faith in the context of a complex world by walking alongside one another in solidarity that lives out interdependence and mutuality.
Informed by these foci, the Office of Ministry staff together with our Campus Ministry Commission student leaders, offer opportunities for practicing, exploring, and enacting faith through various entry points.
