The Director of Christian Outreach (DCO) program is the only one of its kind in the Concordia University System. It prepares you to lead, train, equip and encourage others in the various facets of outreach ministry in congregations and throughout the world. You’ll study cultures, generations and rural/suburban/urban ministries as you learn to plan and facilitate meaningful strategies for the church to reach out to those without a saving faith in Jesus. You’ll take 72 credit hours to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a Director of Christian Outreach certification by majoring in Christian Ministry, minoring in Confessional Lutheranism and completing a DCO internship. It will be a relevant certification if you’re seeking to serve in The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod.
