Concordia is committed to the training and encouragement of church leaders—and we’re not just talking about those studying on our campus! If you’re a pastor in need of some godly support or spiritual edification, you have options through Concordia. We offer a number of on-campus Bible studies, lectures, social events, and resources that are specifically designed to uplift and strengthen pastors in their ministries. We even created a day especially for you, so that you can visit our campus and see all that Concordia has to offer.

Concordia Pastors Conference Series

Join the dozens of pastors and lay people in the area who have made the Concordia Pastors Conference Series a part of their regular routine.

This decades-long tradition aims to strengthen church ministries through the sharing of scripturally based wisdom on subjects that matter most to pastors. If you come, you might participate in a Bible study format, or you might find a lecture format … It all depends on which member of Concordia’s esteemed theology department is leading it.

The Concordia Pastors Conference Series runs from September through November, and January through April, with conferences taking place on the last Monday of each month. A complimentary lunch begins at 11:30 am and presentations end at 1 pm

There’s no need to reserve a spot. Just stop by the Lake Shore Room on Concordia’s campus on one of the dates listed below. If you have questions, you can direct them to Dr. Daniel Paavola, daniel.paavola@cuw.edu. Watch past Concordia Pastors Conference presentations on Concordia’s YouTube channel.
