For more than 150 years, Concordia University Chicago has provided professional workers for the schools, congregations and other agencies of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
While the context for preparing workers has changed, as have the particular skills and abilities needed by these entities within the Church, the one constant that has remained is a dedication to the integrity of the Divine Call and securing the same for those qualified graduates of this institution. The Synodical Placement Application is the means by which we record your willingness to enter into the service of the Church. All required forms and instructions are available below.
