On Feb. 23 and 24, Concordia Academy’s entire student body fanned out through the Twin Cities and completed more than 1,400 hours of service as part of the school’s annual Vision4Life program. 

In it’s ninth year, Vision4Life is one of the most anticipated events of the school year for students at the Roseville school. On the Vision4Life days, groups of students spent one day off-campus, volunteering at more that two dozen sites, including Minnesota Teen Challenge, Union Gospel Mission, Habitat for Humanity, the Salvation Army and Huffman Disabled War Vet House. 

The Rev. Dr. Timothy Berner, Concordia Academy’s principal, said, “It’s an awesome thing to see how hard our students work and how willing they are to pour themselves into the lives of others.”

Groups spent the other day on-campus, participating in small group discussions, activities, worship and seminars. In addition to teachers and staff members, dozens of parents, alumni and friends of the school also volunteered with the student groups.
