"Walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7 But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift.
Do you have a desire to be a pastor?
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 NEED IN THE AALC
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 FUTURE IS NOW
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?
