Taste of the Sem

For High School Men

Learn more about pastoral ministry at Concordia Seminary
Feb. 13-15, 2021 (Online)

Taste of the Sem is an opportunity for high school men to spend a weekend at the Seminary to study theology, pray, worship, meet and talk with Concordia Seminary students and professors.

Due to concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), this event will be held online.


The event provides a sense of Seminary life for those who think God might be directing them toward the pastoral ministry. Taste of the Sem helps participants gain a better understanding of what we confess when we say, “Faith alone, Scripture alone, Grace alone.” Participants explore the significant historical impact of the Lutheran Reformation on the church and world, and study the Scriptures with Seminary professors to find out why we believe in justification by grace through faith. Participants also spend time with seminarians.

Registration and Travel

The registration deadline is Feb. 5, 2021. There is no registration fee. Registration is limited to 40 participants and is taken on a first-registered basis. Registration is incomplete until you have received a confirmation email from Admissions.
