For those called to serve
We have a special interest in preparing students for service in the church, including the ordained ministry, parish work, diaconal ministry, social ministry and ministry in music.
Preparation for graduate theological study, ministry and church occupations includes academic instruction, spiritual maturation and experiential learning.
While you may major in any field, you’re encouraged to emphasize the broadening aspects of the liberal arts, to acquire reading skills in Classical or New Testament (Koiné) Greek and to study a language likely to be spoken by those whom they may be called to serve.
Our historic relationship with the Lutheran Church (ELCA) attracts many students to its service, but graduates have also entered service in many other denominations.
