Project: Concordia the Reformer Seminary

Since the opening of Concordia the Reformer Seminary in the Dominican Republic in 2017, the institution has focused on preparing men to be shepherds, teachers and evangelists. In just a few short years, numerous well-trained theologians have graduated and are pastoring congregations across Latin America and the Caribbean. Some 50 men currently attend residential and online pastoral formation classes. The deaconess program has produced nearly 100 graduates, with 70 more women enrolled. In addition, online pre-seminary courses are new this year, and plans are for a Lutheran teacher training program to be rolled out during the next academic year.
