E-lert - June 2014

Equipping future leaders for your community

The Bible is the primary textbook in all courses at Luther Seminary. As the world and church continue to evolve and change around us, it is all the more important that our students remain anchored in God's word. With the gospel of Jesus Christ as their text, students are preparing to work within congregations and communities like yours.

Equipping pastors and other leaders for God's world continues to be at the heart of our mission. Many supporters have already made a valuable investment in that mission this year. With the Make it Happen Challenge, your new or renewed support will go twice as far for Luther students following God's call when you give to the Sustaining Fund by June 30. This is the perfect time of year to make a gift in honor of a loved one to celebrate a graduation, ordination or other special occasion!

Donor support makes up just over 50 percent of Luther Seminary's operating revenue when combining outright gifts and endowment income. This partnership with friends and alumni provides vital support across the seminary, allowing us to:

  • Attract the best students and teachers
  • Implement new, innovative curriculum
  • Create strong programming
  • Keep the cost of tuition down

Make your gift go twice as far!
The Make it Happen Challenge has been graciously created by a committed friend of the seminary to help motivate and encourage others to join with generous support. Your investment in future church leaders will be matched dollar for dollar and have double the impact! Add your support to that of the many others like you who care about the future of the church by making your investment in church leaders today. Giving to the Sustaining Fund by June 30 will make your gift go twice as far!
