Spirituality for All

Nick McGinley '23, Brooklyn Park, Minn., shares his exploration of spiritual life at Concordia and how all are invited to engage in their own way.

The following foci of Campus Ministry at Concordia College form the core of the work of our shared life together and are deeply informed by and crafted to support the partnership between Concordia’s Campus Ministers and the Campus Ministry Commission.

Practicing Faith

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.

Exploring Faith

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.

Enacting Faith

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.

Informed by these foci, the Campus Ministry staff together with our Campus Ministry Commission student leaders, offer opportunities for practicing, exploring, and enacting faith through various entry points. 

Interfaith Cooperation Statement

Concordia College practices interfaith cooperation because of its Lutheran dedication to prepare thoughtful and informed global citizens who foster wholeness and hope, build peace through understanding, and serve the world together.
