Register for Green and Gold Days at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
Nov. 14, 2020 (Online)
Feb. 19, 2021
April 9, 2021

Due to concerns about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Nov. 14 event will be held online.

Green & Gold Days are held for men and women college-age and older who are thinking about becoming pastors or deaconesses.


These one-day events 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.

By extending this invitation, Concordia Seminary hopes to recognize their role in supporting students interested in pastoral and deaconess studies.

The Nov. 14, 2020, event will be held online from 2–4 p.m. (CST). Participants will learn about financial aid, on-campus housing and the admissions process and will participate in a panel discussion with current students. The registration deadline has been extended to Nov. 11.
