Do you have a desire to be a pastor?

The American Association of Lutheran Churches trains pastors to establish and equip the church to reach and disciple the next generation.

Has anyone ever told you, "You would make a great pastor" or that "you should consider this as your career path?" Have you ever wondered what your vocation might be after college? Or, do you already have a career that is not fulfilling and you're wondering about pastoral ministry? St. Paul wrote, "If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble thing" (1 Tim. 3:1). If you have answered "Yes" to any of these questions then give us a call or send us an e-mail. We would be happy to speak with you. As we look down the road the need for pastors in our Church body is great. Perhaps you are one whom God is calling to serve Him in His harvest field.


The American Association of Lutheran Churches has a great need. Did you know that within the next 5–15 years many, if not most, of our current pastors will retire? Just think of all the congregations that will need pastors.


The American Lutheran Theological Seminary exists to train pastors to serve in our congregations. The good news is that we have young (and older) men who are studying to be pastors. Is this part of your future?
