We want to address the larger issues affecting our Woodbury and Washington County communities by providing a space and the speakers to facilitate conversations about those topics. These conversations will address a wide range of issues from opioid abuse to suicide prevention to senior living. We host our Community Conversations twice a year: once in the fall and once in the spring.

If you'd like to receive information about upcoming Community Conversations, fill out the form below and we'll add you to our email list. You'll only receive information about Community Conversations.

In November 2020 we discussed

Racial Justice and the Church

Since the tragic death of George Floyd, the topic of race and justice has come back to the forefront in our country. A big question that the church needs to wrestle with is - How should we be responding to all of this?

Our speaker, Rev. Dr. Mark Koschmann, joined the faculty at Concordia University in Fall 2015 as the Fiechtner Chair in Christian Outreach and as an Assistant Professor of Theology and Missiology. He leads the mentoring program of the Hoffmann Institute in urban and cross-cultural outreach. Koschmann teaches courses on Christian mission and outreach, world religions, and a special course offering for students taking part in the Hoffmann Mentoring Initiative Christian Leadership Program Scholarship and urban outreach course, “Faith and Justice in the City.”

Here is the recording of the talk.

On Wednesday, November 4, Concordia University, St. Paul was honored to host Rev. Dr. John & Monique Nunes (Concordia College, New York) via Zoom for two special events with the CSP community.


Each event explored restoration and reconciliation in a racially divisive world. The morning convocation with students, faculty, and staff was based on the book Meant for More and the evening's Vern Gundermann Reformation Heritage Lecture focused on Wittenberg Meets the World.


We are pleased to share recordings of these events with you, our partners and friends in ministry. Feel free to use and share.
