Student Ministry & Go Missions

Welcome to Student Ministry & Go Missions!

Attending Concordia University gives you the opportunity to not only grow intellectually, but also spiritually! We hope that you will dive deep and emerge convinced that Jesus loves you more than you can imagine, and that nothing can separate you from His love! (Romans 8:39)

Student Ministry and Go Missions provide ways you can grow in Christ intellectually, relationally, and experientially. We need servants and leaders who are eager to follow Jesus as part of a living, diverse community of faith.

Get Involved with Student Ministry & Go Missions!

Here are some of the ways you can get involved, and we are always open to starting new initiatives that help people Join Jesus on His Mission!
