Concordia Seminary and Taste of the Sem
Is there a young man in your high school youth group who has gifts that would be well served in pastoral ministry? Do you have a high school student who has expressed an interest in the pastoral ministry? If so, please consider encouraging him to check out Concordia Seminary’s “Taste of the Sem,” being held February 15-17, 2020. During this on-campus event, young men considering the ministry will be connected with a current seminary student to see what life is like at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. To register or to get more information, please check the Concordia Seminary website or contact Rev. Dr. Scott Holder in the Admissions Office at 314.505.7225.
