‘Vocatio’ high school recruitment event set for Aug. 2–4

Online event helps students consider future in ministry

High school students considering a future in ministry are invited to participate in Concordia Seminary, St. Louis’ virtual Vocatio event Aug. 2–4, 2020. The event is usually held on campus but has been moved online because of the coronavirus pandemic.

During the event, students will explore God’s calling and direction through Bible study and thoughtful conversation about vocation. Students will interact with Seminary faculty throughout the event, as well as with representatives from the Concordia University System during a virtual college fair.

“The world around us is continually falling apart, and people need hope. That’s why Jesus established the church, so people would know where to find Him and His cross,” says Director of Recruitment Rev. Micah Glenn. “We need more pastors and churches so more people might come to know Jesus and the peace only He can offer through the Word and Sacraments. There’s no better place than Concordia Seminary to train to become a pastor or church leader.”

The event is free, and the registration deadline is July 17. Interested participants can learn more and register at csl.edu/vocatio.

A link to join the event will be provided to registrants before Aug. 2.

Each year, the Seminary offers visitation events for prospective students who are in high school or college or who are considering ministry as a second career. Individual visits also can be scheduled. Learn more at csl.edu/visit.
