Martin Luther Society

Help students prepare for a life following God’s calling in service to others. Concordia-Chicago aims to provide support and financial assistance to those pursuing the meaningful vocation of church work at the University.

Committed Support for Future Church Professionals

Concordia-Chicago is privileged to have prepared thousands to lead lives of service in our Lutheran churches and schools. For more than 155 years, Concordia University Chicago has remained true to its mission, equipping men and women to serve and lead with integrity, creativity, competence and compassion.

In 2000, the Martin Luther Society was formed with the mission to provide support and financial assistance to students pursuing church work. Too often, students and families are unable to cover the cost of four or more years of college education; therefore the Society works to guarantee that financial need will not prevent students from preparing for ministry.

With a gift for church work students, you will become a member of the Martin Luther Society and

  • Join a select group of partners who support the ministry of future church workers
  • Provide greatly needed funds for students who have a heart for service

With a single gift of $300 or more, you have the opportunity to honor a church worker you celebrate with a personalized letter and certificate.

Join the Martin Luther Society Today
