Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will host three visitation events for prospective students in the month of January.
Shepherds of God’s Flock: January 9, 2014
Designed for those in college or older, this retreat will focus on the spiritual and personal aspects of the decision-making process. Concordia Seminary invites you to explore questions you may have in a relaxed, retreat-like atmosphere on the Seminary campus, as you: talk with current Seminary students about their decisions to prepare for being shepherds of God’s flock; mine the depths of the Scriptures concerning this office; worship with the Seminary community in chapel; and talk with other retreat guests from around the country who are contemplating such service.
Participants are also encouraged to stay through Friday, January 10, to attend “Green and Gold Days,” allowing for time to sit in on Seminary classes.
Green and Gold Days: January 10, 2014
Green and Gold Days are for men and women college-age and older who are thinking about becoming pastors or deaconesses. These are one-day events that provide a quick opportunity for prospective students to come and see all the Seminary offers. Participants interact with current students, attend classes, worship in the chapel, and speak with members of the faculty. The day ends with dinner. One unique feature of Green and Gold Days is that pastors and pre-seminary advisors are encouraged to attend the event with their students.
Taste of the Sem: January 18-20, 2014
Taste of the Sem is an opportunity for high school men to spend a weekend at the Seminary to study theology, pray, worship, meet and talk with Seminary students and professors. Participants will spend time with one Seminary student at his field education congregation on Sunday morning and attend classes with him on Monday morning. The event is designed to provide a sense of Seminary life for those who think God might be directing them toward the pastoral ministry. Throughout the weekend, visitors can also participate in sports tournaments for volleyball, basketball, foosball, and ping-pong.
