YOU ARE INVITED!
This time together is Sunday, November 14th, from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
A Zoom link is available from the Synod Office.
Sponsored by your South Carolina Synod and hosted by the Invitation to Service Committee, It is designed for all Inquirers interested in attending seminary and for those who will take this journey with them, including but not limited to a spouse, pastor, and family members.
Whether or not you have started filling out the application to a seminary or the paperwork for the candidacy process, you are encouraged to join in during this time to learn more about what you might expect at a seminary and what to expect during the candidacy process.
You will participate in conversations centered around a variety of presentations. You will learn about the different tracks rostered leaders may take, what life as a rostered leader could look like, and the financial and family issues that most rostered leaders face.
This day together begins the significant relationship between the inquirer (their family members and congregation) and the candidacy committee, building a foundation for the years and process to come. Spouses/significant others and your pastor are encouraged to attend.
We will begin at 4:00 p.m. with presentations from South Carolina Synod and Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary representatives.
Afterward, we will have a panel discussion with current rostered leaders and spouses. We will be done by 6:00 p.m.
