This fall more than 70 Master of Divinity students from Luther Seminary will head to their internship sites across the U.S. and beyond. For one year these students will actively minister in congregations from Charlotte to Honolulu, and from Fairbanks to La Paz. Please pray for our interns and their families as they travel to and settle into their new communities. Pray for spiritual growth and nurturing, for welcoming congregations and for call-affirming experiences.
This past year, a record number of individuals, families, congregations and corporations supported Luther Seminary. In fact, since the Called & Sent campaign began in 2001 we’ve increased our donor base by record numbers – 26 percent!
This generosity makes it possible for over 800 students with remarkable gifts for ministry to come to Luther Seminary. Here they learn from faculty of the highest caliber, receive hands-on training through internships, gain understanding of cultures different than their own, and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
We invite you to come on board and help prepare seminary students to be strong, effective leaders who will keep the future of the church vibrant. https://www.luthersem.edu/gifts [Make your gift to Luther Seminary today!]
