The North American Lutheran Church has begun an effort to raise at least $1 million for the new North American Lutheran Seminary (NALS).
NALC congregations are encouraged to have a special Seminary Month emphasis as a part of the fund-raising efforts. The decision about when to hold the four-week emphasis will be made by local congregations, but organizers hope to raise funds as quickly as possible.
Congregations were sent bulletin inserts and a flyer with suggestions for implementing the Seminary Month emphasis by e-mail. You may download these resources by clicking on the links above or you may request copies by calling the NALC office at 888-551-7254.
“There is truly great strength in numbers, and there is great potential in the NALC to quickly build up the Theological Education Fund in support of the new North American Lutheran Seminary,” said Pastor David Wendel, Assistant to the Bishop for Ministry and Ecumenism. “Already, we have had folks outside the NALC contacting us about how they can donate to support the NALS. Now is the time for those of us in the NALC to step up as well!”
Donations to support the NALC Theological Education Fund may be given through local congregations, online, or sent to:
