Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Concordia Gospel Outreach is a ministry of Concordia Publishing House (CPH) that equips mission teams, missionaries, and individuals with Bible-based literature and educational materials so they may spread the Gospel throughout the world.

Our prayer is that we make a significant impact on the spiritual life of a child . . . a family . . . a community . . . our world.

Our Vision

The vision of Concordia Gospel Outreach is that everyone will have an opportunity to hold the Gospel message in their hands and learn of the love of Jesus. With your support, we can make this vision a reality.

“And he [Jesus] said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.’”
Mark 16:15 ESV ®

Our History

In 1958, Concordia Publishing House recognized that mission programs around the world had a significant need for quality Bible-based literature to support outreach efforts. In response to this ministry need and our own calling to tell the world about the love of Jesus, CPH established and partnered with Concordia Tract Mission.

In 1992, Concordia Tract Mission was renamed Concordia Gospel Outreach to more accurately reflect the mission and reach of the program. Today, Concordia Gospel Outreach works intentionally to provide timely and relevant materials to support critical ministry outreach programs in the United States and throughout the world.

Concordia Gospel Outreach continues to identify opportunities to place the Gospel into the hands of those who might otherwise never hear about the love of Jesus.
