The call to give is compelling. Those who support Luther Seminary with their gifts of time and money can tell you what this stewardship role means to them:
Gertrude Hognander served the Lord with a song in her heart her whole life. Now she's used the gifts God has given her to enable others to do the same.
Norman and Eunice Jones
Both of our families were centered in the Christian life. Giving and serving seemed very natural. That was where the heart was.
I am a member of the Leadership Circle at Luther Seminary because I love the Church and want it to be here for future generations.
Lee and Louise Sundet
Pastors and teachers who effectively teach God's word can have a great impression on young people. Lee and Louise Sundet can witness to that.
Noel and Ethel Estenson
Noel Estenson is no stranger to meeting challenges. "I heard that Luther Seminary sometimes has to turn away potential students because of a lack of funding," he said. "I know that after I've left this place we call earth, Luther Seminary will continue responding to the call of supplying pastors for our churches."
Janet and Brad Anderson
Janet and Brad Anderson have been outspoken advocates for strong, biblically based preaching. As part of their involvement with the Called and Sent Campaign, they're doing something to ensure that need will be met. The Andersons have pledged to create the Marbury Anderson Chair for Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary in honor of Brad's father, a retired Lutheran pastor.
Dr. E. Duane and Mrs. Marlene Engstrom
We wanted to make sure that some of our present assets were set aside to benefit those attending the seminary in the future.
Al and Mary Ann Solmonson
Ask Mary Ann Solmonson how she thinks of stewardship and she'll tell you it's: "Everything I am and everything I do after I say what I believe."
John and Eleanor Yackel
Circle Pines, Minnesota
Because of our respect for this institution based on the blessings we have derived from its "product" ... we have decided to invest some of our hopes, prayers, and resources at this seminary.
Gurine Gall is all about doing her part to support the gospel and God's work in the world at Luther Seminary. "From those to whom much is given, much is expected. I feel it is my obligation to help make sure the spreading of the gospel continues well into the future," she says.
