SMP Students Receive Vicarage Assignments

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, is pleased to announce that 21 Specific Ministry Pastor Program (SMP) students received vicarage assignments in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). The SMP vicarage assignments were announced during Concordia Seminary’s Opening Service on Aug. 31.

The SMP program is designed to meet the needs of the church for pastors in mission and ministry opportunities where a pastor with a seminary degree may not be available. In order to be eligible for the SMP program men must be serving in a ministry of a Lutheran congregation which desires their service as a pastor. They must be nominated for the program by their District President. Based upon this nomination, and their previous ministry experiences, the men begin their academic work as concurrent-deferred vicars.
