Graduation day at the seminary

On May 22, 2015, 30 seniors received their diplomas from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.

President Paul Wendland based his sermon on the class passage, “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

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.
