Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary

The purpose of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary is to offer theological training that prepares men to enter the pastoral ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod or of churches within its confessional fellowship . The seminary also endeavors in various ways to offer opportunity for theological and professional growth to called workers who already are serving in the ministry of its confessional fellowship.

Candidates assigned

This week, the synod's Assignment Committee met to assign graduates to congregations, schools, and mission settings. On Thursday, May 21, 49 men learned where they were headed to serve. Of those, 30 were seniors receiving their first call, two are Pastoral Studies Institute (PSI) graduates, and three were from the class of 2013 and received new calls. Seven men were reassigned to one-year calls, and four had their calls made permanent.

First GRATSI graduates receive diplomas

In 2010, under the guidance of World Mission Seminary Professor Kenneth Cherney, we began to partner with the Lutheran Church of Central Africa (LCCA) in offering a degree program in continuing education for LCCA pastors. The program was dubbed “GRATSI”—the Greater Africa Theological Studies Institute—and its overall purpose is to train a select group of LCCA pastors for positions of leadership in that church body.
