An Attainable Christ-centered Education

Larry ’70 and Chris (Meyer) ’69 Irmer feel blessed.

Blessed to have received financial support that made it possible for them to earn a Lutheran, Christ-centered education. Blessed that they were equipped for service in the church and world when they graduated. Blessed to have been on the hearts of those in the Concordia community who were praying for Concordia students’ academic and spiritual growth. And blessed to be able to offer the same support for today’s Concordia students.

"We are proud graduates, and we support Concordia. We know of that support that we had, and we appreciate everything that Concordia gave us personally and professionally as a foundation."

As retired teachers in Oceanside, California, both Larry and Chris are dedicated to playing a role in continuing to ensure a Christ-centered Concordia education is available to today’s college students. Larry and Chris provide gifts to the Concordia Fund, which in turn provides student scholarship assistance and the funding needed to carry out Concordia’s day-to-day operations. Concordia Fund gifts are powerful, real-time gifts that have an immediate impact!

“Concordia’s mission parallels our beliefs,” said Larry, “That mission at Concordia is continuing, and whatever we can do to support that … we’ll do that cheerfully.”

You can also play a part in equipping students to learn, serve and lead in the church and world today and for years to come.
