In 2006, Concordia established a partnership with the Ethiopian Evangelical Lutheran Church Mekane Yesus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Three trips to Ethiopia in 2006, 2008 and 2010 helped grow the partnership between Concordia Lutheran Church and School and the Mekane Yesus Lutheran Church and School. In 2012, Pastor Markos Hadero and volunteer Mesfin Taye visited Fort Wayne to further bless the relationship. School children of Concordia, along with children from other Lutheran schools and congregation in the Fort Wayne area, have funded computers for use in the Mekane Yesus school. The team is seeking God’s will for a return trip to Ethiopia in Oct. 2016.
Current short-term missions in the works:
Costa Rica – 2017

Concordia is open to additional short-term mission location ideas from Concordia members.
