National Student Marketing Competition

The fourth annual National Student Marketing Competition, sponsored by the Lutheran Church Extension Fund, is an incredible opportunity to partner with the Concordia Universities as we further our mission of serving The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).

The 2015 competition assignment asks students to develop a comprehensive plan that raises the awareness of LCEF and how it impacts the LCMS, and ultimately on communities and individuals—how LCEF is a catalyst for empowered ministries and people sharing the Gospel. The campaign should motivate LCMS members to actively become a partner through an investment, a loan, a gift or the use of a support service.

The competition culminates April 10, 2015, at the LCMS International Center in St. Louis, Missouri, with presentations by the participating teams. Teams must submit a completed Intent to Participate form by Jan. 16, 2015.

LCEF looks forward to the opportunity to interact with Concordia University students and providing them with a unique "real world" educational experience. We also look forward to the reverse mentoring the students provide when they share their view of the world. In addition to the benefit of the experience, the teams also take home a monetary award for their schools.

If you have additional questions, please contact Jim Britton, Director of Media Communications—Marketing and Customer Support, at or 800-843-5233.
