President, Seraphim Communications
St. Paul, MN.
There is a great deal of noise in the culture that pumps out louder sounds and more active and eye-catching images. There is, however, a deep desire to hear and see stories that connect our heart to the heart of God.
Lutheran Church of the Transfiguration
Many people might think that seminary students are very serious and focused on what they're doing. That's true ... but at the same time they know how to have fun. They're regular people just like everybody else.
Ph.D., International Alum
I chose to attend Luther because it had a good reputation in the world of theological studies and a large, diverse faculty body made up of well-known scholars. Also, the community was warm and welcoming. The student body was also diverse.
Minister of Worship and Music
Our Savior's Lutheran Church
In the beginning I was primarily interested in the music classes, but discovered that I thoroughly enjoyed the theology classes as well.
Calvary Lutheran Church
We need great leaders in the church, and I think that, as intimidating as seminary might sound, it's a great experience and they do a great job of preparing us ... Come and check it out and see what God might be up to in your life!
I am from Madagascar ... from a village where the first Lutheran Norwegian missionaries made their station. Active involvement with the church gave me the desire to be a missionary and to be involved in the ministry of the church.
Master of Sacred Music Alum
In my interactions with fellow students, I appreciated how the community recognizes each other's gifts, whether it is music, youth ministry, social work or something else.
Doctor of Philosophy Student
Burlington Lutheran Church
Mary Bosell has been on quite a ride since she graduated from Luther Seminary. While she now serves as associate pastor at Burlington Lutheran Church in Burlington, Wash., parish ministry wasn't always the first option in Bosell's mind.
Bethlehem Lutheran Church
Look up "church" in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church, says Pastor Ivy L. Borgstrom. Borgstrom, a 2004 Luther Seminary graduate, serves as associate pastor at Bethlehem Lutheran.
