Director of Christian Education (DCE)

Christian Educational Leadership Major

Those in the Director of Christian Education program are lifespan educational leaders prepared for team ministry in a congregational setting. 

All those in the DCE program complete the Christian educational leadership major on the way to being called and commissioned by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. The Christian educational leadership major may also be completed by others who intend to serve in non-LCMS denominations.

Concordia is an established leader and innovator in the preparation in the field and offers several emphases for deeper study: outreach, pre-seminary, parish music, family life, child ministries, youth ministries and adult ministries.
