Learn why Travis and Laurel Grulke decided to become Concordia Cornerstone Society members.

To the Grulkes, it’s important that the next generation of leaders find vocations where “God can use them in mighty ways to be a blessing.” Enter Concordia University.

Travis (’01) and Laurel (’99) are both graduates of Concordia Ann Arbor, so they know firsthand the type of education students receive at the university. That’s one of the reasons they have chosen to give to the Concordia Fund.

“We are grateful for all the ways the Good Lord blessed us during our time as students at Concordia Ann Arbor and continues to bless us as educators serving our Lutheran schools,” Travis said. “The Holy Spirit is alive and well on campus and we want more and more young people to be impacted by the Gospel as they prepare for a variety of vocations…”

Currently, Travis is the superintendent of Lutheran schools for the Michigan District, and Laurel teaches at St. Paul in Ann Arbor. They both graduated from CUAA with education degrees.

“There is no better way to use your time, talents, and treasures to support the ministries you know are raising up the next generation of Christian leaders in our communities. The investment is an eternal blessing,” Travis said. “Anytime we can pray for, promote, and support the mission and ministry of CUAA, the better.”

We hope you will join the Grulkes in supporting the Concordia Fund by becoming inaugural members of the Concordia Cornerstone Society. The CCS is part of an effort to raise awareness of the Concordia Fund’s unrestricted gifts to help impact the immediate needs of our students. By making an unrestricted, cumulative gift of $1,000 or more on a fiscal year basis (July to June) to the Concordia Fund, a donor will become a member of the CCS.
