Concordia professor named LEA Christus Magister

Dr. Jeffrey Burkart

Jeffrey Burkart, professor emeritus, director of drama ministry, artist in residence, and coordinator of special projects at Concordia University, St. Paul, Minnesota, is the 2012 Lutheran Education Association (LEA) Christus Magister award recipient. Since 1965, the LEA award has been presented to Lutheran educators who have made significant contributions to Lutheran education.

“My personal mission is to proclaim the gospel of Christ in words and actions to everyone whom I am blessed to meet and to teach people in every stage of life that our calling is to be who God has created us to be, namely, His forgiven, redeemed children, freed in baptism to live our lives and use our gifts in faithful service to God in our family, congregation, our workplace and the world,” said Burkart.
