Concordia Lutheran Seminary

Missionary Study Centre

The Missionary Study Centre was established at the beginning of the 1997-98 academic year. Its purpose is to contribute to the formation of pastors and lay leaders by fostering more effective integration of Biblical and Confessional Theology with the mission which Christ has given to His church.

The three broad objectives of the Centre are:

  • to help the seminary provide pastors for the church whose theological minds are coupled to pastoral attitudes and a missionary heart;
  • to help ministerial candidates develop the skills and attitudes necessary for reaching across cultural, linguistic, and social barriers with the Gospel;
  • to enrich the seminary through interaction with seminaries around the world, sharing our own theological strengths with others and being enriched by the presence of overseas guests and instructors.

The Missionary Study Centre has a resource area set aside for easy access to reference materials and to provide a setting conducive to discussion, reflection, and growth.
