The cost of seminary education continues to rise, making it an even greater challenge for those preparing to serve as leaders of the church.
To support future leaders, Sunday, February 16 has been designated as Seminary Sunday.
Congregations are invited to participate in a special offering to help offset the cost of seminary for students as an expression of gratitude for their pastoral leadership. A gift to Seminary Sunday is a way to honor and celebrate those who have served with you in pastoral leadership and to provide for future leaders.
Donations from NT-NL will be divided equally between Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) and Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, both of whom support the Lutheran Seminary Program in the Southwest in Austin, Texas.
To help you spread the word, we have prepared a two-sided bulletin insert for congregations to use. Please download the insert here and here.
