Seminary Announces New Admissions Event

November 10, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 10, 2011

ST. LOUIS—Perhaps you have considered the possibility of serving as a “Shepherd of God’s Flock” — a pastor, missionary, or chaplain — but you have questions such as:

How can I know for sure whether or not I should be a pastor?
What does the Bible say about being a pastor?
What does a pastor, missionary, or chaplain do?
What are the joys and challenges that they face?
Is there a need for them?

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, invites you to explore these questions and more in a relaxed, retreat-like atmosphere on the Seminary campus at an event called Shepherds of God’s Flock on January 5, 2012.

Designed for those in college or older, the retreat will focus on the spiritual and personal aspects of the decision-making process. During this one-day event, you will: mine the depths of the Scriptures concerning this office; hear from pastors, missionaries, and chaplains concerning the joys and challenges of their service; talk with other retreat guests from around the country who are contemplating such service; worship with the Seminary community in chapel; and talk with current Seminary students about their decisions to prepare for such service.

There is no cost to attend. All meals and lodging will be provided free of charge. Dress is casual. Please bring a Bible. Wives, fiancées, and girlfriends are also encouraged to attend. Participants are encouraged to stay through Friday, January 6, to attend “Green and Gold Days,” allowing for time to sit in on Seminary classes.

For more information or to register, contact Concordia Seminary admissions at 800-822-9545 or admissions@csl.edu.

2011 SEMINARY SUNDAY MATERIALS AVAILABLE NOW

July 23, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 19, 2011

ST. LOUIS—In the coming weeks, Concordia Seminary will send a packet of Seminary Sunday materials to the pastor of each Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregation. A special bulletin insert, an adult Bible study, a sermon, and other worship resources are available to assist pastors and congregations in observing Concordia Seminary Sunday. The materials are not dated and may be used in a variety of ways throughout the year.

The theme and text from Colossians would be appropriate for use at many times during the church year. Therefore, you can choose the best time for your congregation to use the materials and emphasize the importance of seminary education.

It is our hope that Concordia Seminary Sunday will serve as an annual opportunity for you to: emphasize the importance of forming men for service in the pastoral ministry and women for service as deaconesses, and enlist prayer support for this activity; inform your congregation how pastors are formed for ministry; and encourage your congregation to assist in the crucial process of identifying, informing, and encouraging our future pastors and deaconesses.

Churches must place their orders at least two weeks before they want to use the materials to allow for mailing. For more information or to order Concordia Seminary Sunday materials, contact creative services, Concordia Seminary, 801 Seminary Place, St. Louis, MO 63105; 314-505-7362; curlessj@csl.edu.

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.
