Graduation is a special time of year at Concordia. It’s a time to reflect, to celebrate, and to look forward to all that the future holds. Our graduates will go on to serve Christ in the Church and World long after they have left campus, but wherever they go, they will always be part of the Concordia family.

Meet a handful of exceptional graduates, and read the inspiring stories that have led them to commencement.
