About Us


About Us

 We are convinced that our congregations become stronger and healthier as we increase the number and variety of voices that are speaking the truth in love among us. We are committed to building a community of individuals whose work supports the spread of the gospel. Concordia Market is a community of content creators committed to empowering God’s people for mission. Concordia Market is a gathering of online shops through which content creators provide the larger church body access to resources that support their mission and ministry. By gathering the shops in a community system, we can amplify the digital presence of the content creator and offer the consumer a more productive search experience.

Our Challenge

The Marketplace Project is focused on three challenges hindering many ministries:


Current resources available to the individual or the local congregation do not focus on missionary formation. In other words, there is a lack of quality resources which are focused on equipping people to be everyday missionaries.  


As ministries shrink and the cost of church workers increase, many ministries cannot find quality Lutheran resources which they can afford.


Many content creators are not able to connect with their target audience. The difficulty in the connection may be the limitations of print-focused publishers or it may be their e-resources are lost in the massive data dump from a traditional search engine request.

Join The Concordia Market Community

We have long understood that we are stronger together than alone. Solomon wrote about this in Ecclesiastes 4:9-11:

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?


For the most part, a single website is like a spec of sand in the sea of sand in the Sahara Desert. When we go it alone, it is difficult, almost impossible, for a lone artist or content creator to connect with customers. By gathering the content of many websites into a curated place, we amplify our voice. Concordia Market will provide a focused collection of content and content providers improving the user’s ability to successfully connect with much needed resources. As important, Concordia Market will provide a community for content creators to support and collaborate with each other. We are seeking individuals and ministries to partner with us in this great adventure. We have organized ourselves around four interlocking areas of service:



Financial Supporters

Financial Supporters The Concordia Market is a volunteer organization. While our plan includes the addition of some paid support staff to ensure a good shopping experience for our customers and our shop owners, the bulk of our work is done by volunteers. However, Concordia Market requires a great deal of resources to host the content, to keep the security features updates, and to add new features to the site. We depend of the generosity of amazing people just like you. If you would like to join the financial team of Concordia Market visit our parent organization site, Mission Partners Platform to make a one-time contribution, or to sign-up to make regular contributions to our work.

Content Creators


Gospel Focused Content Creators are individuals or ministries that produce the resources that are found on the Concordia Market.  In addition to the awesome partners who have opened shops, we continue to find in independent ministries, we are looking for writers, graphic artists, media artists, and IT individuals to produce the complementary content that is available in the market.


About The Concordia Market Team
The concept for Concordia Market developed as the Mission Partners Platform board members discussed strategies for supporting congregations and missionaries in their mission efforts.  A launch team of three Lutheran pastors, a commissioned minister, and four lay-leaders soon began to give flesh to the conceptual bones that would be Concordia Market.  The content of Concordia Market largely reflects our Lutheran values of Scripture alone, Grace alone, and Faith alone.  However, all are free to shop the shops and use the content within the parameters described by the shop owners.  Gospel Content Creators from all Christian faith traditions are welcome to apply for a shop and post content that is keeping with our community guidelines.
