Director of Christian Education (DCE)
Brian Ho ’24
Major: Theological Studies: Christian Education Leadership

I first heard about Concordia at my home church, Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit in San Francisco. My DCE is an alumnus, and the Christ-like love I received from him inspired me to go into full-time ministry. I also learned from church volunteers who attended Concordia before me and shared about their studies and future vocations. I began volunteering at my church in high school where I participated in worship, learned to be comfortable in front of a crowd, led summer camps, and served in a church community.

Concordia has broadened my perspective of life, preparing me to connect with people outside of my background whom I will be serving one day.

I am seeing firsthand how God has made each of us differently, and how as a minister of the Gospel, I am called to reach people where they are, recognizing how each of us is uniquely made. Concordia’s close community helped me easily meet new people and build incredible friendships.


Just go! I remember feeling led my junior year of high school to become a DCE, but I felt unequipped because I was not gifted in speaking and lacked faith that I could afford college. My lack of faith almost prevented me from going to Concordia. Thankfully I was encouraged to apply and God provided the tuition!


I am a self-taught musician! I can play the cajon, guitar, piano, and drums.


Being around a lot of strong Christians. I have always had an “older brother” to spiritually mentor me.
