Seminary Hosts Prospective Students At 'Contemplate…'

Thirty-two prospective students and visitors recently attended “Contemplate,” held Oct. 9-11 on the Concordia Seminary, St. Louis campus. Designed for those who are college age or older, the structured visitation event provided an effective means of learning more about life in the Concordia Seminary community and the preparation that leads to service as a pastor, missionary, chaplain or deaconess in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).

Visitors worshiped with the Seminary community in The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus, visited classes and toured the campus. Participants heard presentations on academic offerings, financial assistance, housing, resident field education, vicarage/internship and the admission process.

Visitors also attended an Information Fair designed to highlight many organizations and opportunities that life at Concordia Seminary offers. More than 30 representatives from organizations involved in nearly all aspects of life in the Seminary community were present to share information and answer questions.

The next “Contemplate…” event will take place on March 12-14, 2009. There is no charge to attend “Contemplate…,” and all meals and lodging are provided free of charge. Round-trip transportation to Concordia Seminary from the airport is provided.
