Call Day 2013 Info – 30 Day Countdown

April 1, 2013

Call Day Notification

Friends and Family,

Just a reminder Call Day is Wednesday, May 1st. Call Day is the most anticipated day for Concordia Seminary Community and the churches of the LCMS.

At 3:00 p.m. (CST), the vicarage assignment service will begin.

At 7:00 p.m. (CST), the Call Placement service will begin.

While a many of you would love to be present for Call Day festivities, I also realize that the strands of day to day life (schedules, finances, etc.) simply won’t allow everyone to be present. Thankfully, the wonders of technology give you the ability to be a part of this spectacular as you can watch it on your computer or favorite mobile device. Simply point your favorite web browser to http://callday.csl.edu/

At this website over the next couple of weeks, you will find the service programs for both the Vicarage Assignment and Call Placement services, a google map of both the assignments and placements (updated after each respective service), and a full listing of the vicarage assignments and placements (uploaded after Call Day).

Right now, you can click on the “watch” last year’s Call Day services. Within the next couple of weeks you will be able to click on the “watch” on the webpage and determine if your computer is up and running all that it needs and able to view the service live.  Once you click on it, you should be able to show a short powerpoint and hear sound.  If not, use the number at the bottom of the screen to receive help.

I will have a follow-up e-mail of listing where I will be going and such after the service, hopefully by the weekend.  Those on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, App.Net (ADN) will also see information to a blog or webpage with even more information.

May the season of Christ’s resurrection continue in your lives through this season and all others.

Pass this onto anyone you can think of that might be interested.

Your Brother in Christ,

Eric Ekong

CONCERT PLANNED AT CONCORDIA SEMINARY IN MEMORY OF ROBERT BERGT

August 29, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 17, 2011

ST. LOUIS—A special concert is being planned in memory of Rev. Robert Bergt, the late conductor and music director of Bach at the Sem concerts and artist-in-residence at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. The concert will take place on Sunday, September 25, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Seminary campus.

St. Louis musician and theologian, Robert Bergt, whose work and reputation are known around the world, died Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at the age of 81. He founded the American Kantorei in 1968, the first group of its kind in the United States. The Kantorei is a highly skilled choral and instrumental group that has performed in a variety of settings in St. Louis and beyond. Since 1993, the American Kantorei, under the direction of Robert Bergt, has performed regular concerts in the Bach at the Sem series in the chapel at Concordia Seminary in Clayton. The popular series of concerts featured the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and other sacred music composers and was open to the public at no charge. Also, many of these concerts were broadcast on KFUO-FM.

Dr. Dale A. Meyer, president of Concordia Seminary, will provide both an invocation and a message during the concert. The concert will feature pieces by J. S. Bach, many of which have been performed in past concerts, including Et Resurrexit and Cum Sancto Spiritu from the Mass in B Minor. The congregation will join the American Kantorei in singing “Let Us Ever Walk With Jesus.”

A small reception is being planned directly after the concert on the chapel plaza. For those who cannot attend the concert, it will be broadcast on KFUO (850 AM) and Classic99.com on October 2 at 1:00 p.m. CDT.  For more information, please call 314-505-7362.

167 CALLS AND VICARAGES ISSUED, 4 DEACONESS ASSIGNMENTS AND 10 DEACONESS INTERNSHIPS CELEBRATED AT CONCORDIA SEMINARY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 11, 2011

ST. LOUIS—On May 4, calls to serve as pastors in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) were issued to 86 students at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, during a worship service in The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. These students join more than 12,000 who have been prepared to serve as pastors, missionaries and chaplains during the 172 years of Concordia Seminary’s existence.

In a separate service held earlier that day, 81 students received assignments to serve as vicars. Vicarage is a one-year internship that M.Div. and Alternate Route students preparing to serve in the pastoral ministry must complete.

Concordia Seminary also celebrated four deaconess students who were assigned calls and 10 deaconess students who were assigned internships.

The Missouri District received the most vicars from Concordia Seminary, with 17 vicars assigned, followed by the Florida-Georgia District with six. The Northwest District issued the most calls with 10, followed by the Pacific Southwest District with eight.

The Office of Vespers and Assignment of Vicarages took place at 3:00 p.m. in the Seminary’s Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. Rev. Russell Sommerfeld, president of the Nebraska District of the LCMS, served as preacher.

The Service of Praise and Assignment of Calls, also held in The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus, took place at 7:00 p.m. Rev. Matthew Harrison, president of the LCMS, served as preacher. Officiants for the services included Dr. Dale A. Meyer and Rev. Robert P. Hoehner, the Seminary’s director of placement. The calls were presented to the students by Dr. Larry A. Stoterau, chairman of the Council of Presidents of the LCMS and president of the Pacific Southwest District.

More than 6,000 people from all 50 states and 27 foreign countries – spread over six continents – participated in one or both of the services via the video feeds provided on callday.csl.edu. Several calling congregations were able to celebrate and participate in the services with Concordia Seminary by connecting a projector and speakers in their church so the services were able to be seen and heard. Many also browsed the call lists and explored the interactive maps, contributing to a day with more than seven times the typical web traffic for the evening.

A complete listing of the calls and vicarages issued is available on the Seminary’s special Call Day website at callday.csl.edu.

CSLNEWS Latest: SEMINARY STUDENTS ANTICIPATE CALL DAY

April 27, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 27, 2011

ST. LOUIS—Concordia Seminary’s fourth-year and second-year students will receive their calls and vicarage assignments, respectively, into the ministry at this year’s Call Day services on Wednesday, May 4. The vicarage assignment service will take place at 3:00 p.m. CDT and the call service will take place at 7:00 p.m. CDT.

“I truly do believe that God is behind this process,” said Benjamin Vogel, pastoral candidate. “My wife and I are looking forward to going wherever the church decides to send us!”

Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregations seeking pastors sent more requests this year for the Seminary’s graduates than the number available, “indicating the appreciation the church has for Concordia Seminary graduates,” commented Dr. Robert Hoehner, director of placement and alumni relations at the Seminary. “Join us in thanking God for His goodness and pray for Concordia Seminary as it carries out its important mission of helping to form workers in God’s Kingdom.”

For the second year, Concordia Seminary has created a special Call Day website which has many features that family members, friends, and parishioners all over the world can enjoy. On the site, http://callday.csl.edu/, viewers can watch live streaming video of both the vicarage and call services, read and print the service folders to follow along, and view maps that will pinpoint where each student is called or assigned through the use of interactive mapping technologies. Each pinpoint will include the student’s photo and the church’s information. (The map will not be available until after the services.)

This year, all of the 93 eligible Concordia Seminary pastoral ministry students will receive calls. One student will complete her studies for the deaconess ministry and receive her placement. Eight graduates from the Center for Hispanic Studies (three pastoral candidates and five deaconess candidates) one DELTO student, and six Cross-Cultural Ministry Center students (out of Concordia University Irvine) will receive placements. Additionally, 76 second-year Seminary students will learn of their vicarage assignments.

“I really value the Seminary experience and the brilliance of the instruction that I received here,” commented pastoral candidate Ronald Millard Jr. “I was inspired to view this process as a strengthening of my relationship with God and to view our learning as an adventure that leads to peace that truly is found only in Jesus Christ.”

“Our men and women in our various programs have demonstrated their academic abilities, their commitment to Jesus Christ, and their love for people,” said Dr. Dale A. Meyer, president of Concordia Seminary. “They will serve very well, just as previous graduates have.”

For more information, contact creative services at communications@csl.edu or 314-505-7379.

Big Month September

August 31, 2010

Unless you have been hiding under a LCMS rock the past couple of months, everyone has their calendar marked to either attend, watch, or listen to the Installation Service for President-Elect Matt Harrison. This will be a service of epic proportions. One like Concordia Seminary has ever seen before.

Possibly lost in all the excitement coming down the pipes is the start of the 172nd Academic Year. The opening service isn’t on Sunday following last years format, but this coming Friday morning at 10 a.m. in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. Three staff members will be installed into their prospective positions. Yet, while that is exciting there is still even more to be excited about.

Processing for first time in years together will be incoming M.Div., Alternate Route, Deaconess, SMP, EIIT, DIT, and CHS students. What an imposing display as each of these men and women march (not walk) into the chapel to begin their formation in the ministry. Why not walk? I used the word march to provoke the imagery of war. The devil will take not to this new army heading into formation. He will try to deter them from God’s ministry.

I myself am only a year removed from marching with my classmates into the chapel to begin our formation. There is no feeling like hear the voices of brothers and sisters there to support you not only in this service, but the next step of our journey. It boosted our strength after 3 full days of orientation. I personally, think it would be great for these men and women to march into the chapel packed with brothers and sisters in Christ. It couldn’t hurt to see some support from some higher ups at the International Center as well. Keep in mind these men and women represent the next wave of church workers from Saint Louis. Understand, while I am speaking of CSL specifically, my feelings cover both seminaries as a whole. When ever possible make every attempt to pray for and visibly support these men and women.

So, with that said… Hopefully, I have passed on this information with enough time for you to take time to attend the Opening Service for the 172nd Academic Year at Concordia Seminary. I hope to see you as these men and women begin their next steps in the ministry.
