    Rev. David A. Johnson
    Director, Music Arts

    The Divine Service is prayer wrapped in song. We receive forgiveness, sing for mercy, and praise the glory of the Holy Trinity. The Word proclaimed and petitions prayed are wrapped in melody. We give our tithes and a sacrifice of thanksgiving with song. As the sacrament enwraps the people of God, we sing with all the hosts of heaven, and the saints of all the ages. And then our Lord sends us out singing, “He recalls His promises and leads His people forth in joy with shouts of thanksgiving. Alleluia, Alleluia!”

    The Rev. David Johnson is a musician who has lifted the prayers of God’s people at Concordia Seminary St. Louis, at gatherings of the LCMS, and local parishes throughout the church. He accompanies the proclamation of Gospel with conviction and creativity.

    Rev. Johnson is a leader—a tenacious worker—a consummate teacher. He has shaped countless conferences, worship services, and hymn festivals for the church. Together with a myriad of servants at Concordia Publishing House and the leadership of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Commission on Worship, he artfully shaped the publication of Lutheran Service Book. David is a determined musician and pastor, who seeks to form pastors and deaconesses to continuously explore the riches of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that winsomely and faithfully proclaims Christ!

Chapel

 

The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus stands at the heart and center of Concordia Seminary. It is here that the faculty, students, staff, and members of the community hear of the Lord’s promises and receive His gifts. It is here where the community comes together united as the body of Christ to receive His true body and blood.

Saints Timothy and Titus were chosen as the namesakes for the chapel because they were the recipients of Paul’s three pastoral letters, and they describe the qualifications and desired characteristics of pastors and other church leaders. Formation as a seminarian begins with the reception of all that the risen Jesus has to offer. Apart from the reception of His gifts, there is no formation.

Congregations

The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus is a venue where seminarians are formed. The words and gifts of Jesus mold and shape seminarians into becoming the pastors Sts. Timothy and Titus were. In this Chapel future pastors learn how to lead and how to worship, lead the liturgy, preach, sing, and pray.

Additionally the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus is used for classes in the undercroft, private confession and absolution, personal devotions, and choir rehearsals. Chapel services are held every weekday at 9:35 a.m. during the academic year while classes are in session. All members of the seminary community and the city at large are invited to join with us in the worship of Christ the King.
