With nearly 2,000 Lutheran preschools, elementary schools, and high schools throughout the nation, the harvest is certainly plentiful.

Concordia University Wisconsin is proud to continue to play a role in training educators to answer the call to proclaim Christ within some of these schools.

This May, CUW celebrated another cohort of Lutheran Teacher Degree (LTD) recipients. The following 2019 graduates received calls to serve in ministry as educators in Lutheran schools and will play a vital role in giving testament to God’s love through Christ through their future vocations.
