Ventures in Vocation a big hit!

On October 9-10 Luther Seminary welcomed Ventures in Vocation attendees. Ventures is an event designed for post-college professionals and college-age students to discern potential futures as ordained or lay ministers.

The two-day conference allowed time for conversation with other participants, current students and faculty as well as the exploration of the call to ministry.

Mark Throntveit, professor of Old Testament, delivered the opening lecture titled "The Call of Moses."

Current Luther Seminary students hosted a panel on the topic of vocation, representatives from various seminary offices gathered to provide information and conference participants gathered for worship, attended a class and took a tour of the campus. 

Roland Martinson, academic dean, delivered the closing address titled "Theological Education/Theology for the 21st Century."

"Overall it was a great event," said Andy Jolivette, associate director of admissions. "We have received positive feedback from nearly everyone who attended and we are hopeful many of them will apply and eventually find their way to Luther as students."
