Meet the Professor: Dr. Jon Vieker

Concordia Seminary President Dr. Thomas J. Egger sits down with Dr. Jon Vieker, who became associate professor of Practical Theology in August 2021. He also serves as dean of chapel. Vieker previously served as senior assistant to Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) President Dr. Matthew C. Harrison (2010-21) and assistant director for the LCMS Commission on Worship. He was involved with all aspects of research, development, editing and production of the seminal Lutheran Service Book and its core companion volumes. In his role as dean, he oversees daily chapel services. “Chapel is an opportunity to feed the Seminary community with the Gospel preached and with Sacraments on Wednesdays and then also to model how Lutheran worship is done in this place,” he says. “That’s a great joy.” Learn more about Vieker.
