Quest is a continuing education program presented by CLS. Each series offers lifelong learning classes especially for lay people. The topics address every follower who needs to better understand his or her personal faith and religion. Seminary faculty and guest speakers present a short series of classes on subjects relevant to the day-to-day faith living of contemporary Christians. The classes are designed to be informative and enlivening, comprehensible and relevant, compact and budget-priced. Evening non-credit classes are scheduled in the Fall and the Winter.
Quest courses may also be made available online. Minimum equipment requirements can be found here.
Upcoming Quest Courses:
Religion and Pop Culture

This four-part Quest series explores the connections between religious faith, especially Christianity, and popular expressions of culture. The instructor is the Rev. Dr. Bill Anderson, professor of Biblical Studies at Concordia University of Edmonton. Dr. Anderson holds a Ph.D. in Old Testament and is rostered as a pastor in LCC. His longstanding interest in pop culture connects well with his role as founder and director of Concordia’s “Canadian Centre for Scholarship and the Christian Faith.”
This Quest class is offered as a webcast for distant students.
