This fall, Concordia University will welcome spiritual leaders of the LCMS to campus for the second annual Clergy on Campus, Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019.
Leaders will be given the opportunity to share their godly wisdom, dialogue with the university’s president, and experience the flow of a typical CUW student’s day. Concordia launched an inaugural Clergy on Campus event in 2018, welcoming over 30 pastors from The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio districts to campus.
The 2019 Clergy on Campus will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, on CUW’s campus, 12800 N. Lake Shore Drive, Mequon. All LCMS pastors and other church leaders are invited to attend. Pastors’ wives may also opt to come.
The day will include opportunities to: meet with and offer support and encouragement to students studying to become church-workers; attend daily chapel with the Concordia community; hear updates from leaders in each of Concordia’s five academic schools; sit in on a class; and spend time in trusted conversation with President Rev. Patrick T. Ferry, PhD.
“Concordia’s mission of raising up leaders to share the Gospel with others throughout the world continues to be as relevant today as when Concordia was started,” Ferry says. “As we seek to prepare the next generation of church leaders, we look to our models within the Church to share their valuable insights and extend their support.”
A similar event will also be held on Concordia’s Ann Arbor campus. CUAA’s Clergy on Campus day will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, on the CUAA campus. Pastors are invited to attend one or both.
The CUW and CUAA Clergy on Campus days are free and include lunch and light snacks. Pastors are asked to reserve their spot by Aug. 29.
