Ministry Teams

There’s a lot to be done in the Kingdom, and our faithful volunteers lead with their hearts and talents to facilitate God’s work. Concordia has a long-standing record of service in the Kingsburg community and beyond.

Teams meet at least monthly to discuss and plan upcoming events, update one another on progress and create reports for council & the congregation.
