Education

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod believes education should address the whole person — body, mind and spirit — beginning in early childhood and through higher education.

 

Educating our children

Through early childhood programs, elementary schools and high schools, the congregations of the LCMS are dedicated to providing a solid Lutheran Christian education for our children by operating the largest Protestant parochial school system in America. Schools are located throughout the United States so look for a quality Lutheran school near you.

University education

The LCMS operates 10 colleges and universities across the United States through the Concordia University System. These universities offer more than 160 undergraduate and 50 graduate programs. While each institution is unique, all 10 campuses approach learning from a Lutheran context. The common goal is to develop Christian leaders for the church, community and world.

Seminary education

God has blessed the LCMS with two excellent seminaries. One is located in St. Louis, Mo., and the other is in Fort Wayne, Ind. Through a combination of residential and distance education programs, both seminaries form pastors and deaconesses for service in the LCMS.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
