Perhaps you have considered the possibility of serving as a “shepherd of God’s flock” — a pastor, missionary, or chaplain — but you have questions such as:
- How can I know for sure whether or not I should be a pastor?
- What are the joys and challenges of being a pastor?
- What does the Bible say about pastors?
Concordia Seminary invites you to explore these questions and more 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
- Talk with other retreat guests from around the country who are contemplating such service
- Participants are also encouraged to stay through Friday, to attend Green & Gold Days, allowing for time to sit in on Seminary classes.
