Our Team

You Can Count on Us

It’s a blessing to serve ministries and workers who are spreading God’s word. We understand that no two ministries are the same, no two workers are identical, and we strive to understand your unique needs and provide the best possible benefits solutions. Our leadership team is comprised of caring, educated and experienced professionals who face each decision with one question in mind, “What is the best solution for those we serve?”

At every level of the organization you will find compassionate, knowledgeable team members ready to meet your needs and answer your questions. Taking care of your benefits isn’t just a job, it is our passion to help those in His service.

As you and your workers bring the Gospel to a world in need, you can have confidence in the Concordia Plans’ leadership ensuring your ministry and workers are protected with health, disability, and retirement benefits now and in the future.
