Twenty-fifth Anniversary Celebrations

Concordia Lutheran Seminary celebrates 25 years forming pastors
on 12 September 2009

Under the theme, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus” (Heb 12:2) CLS will celebrate its 25th anniversary on September 12. We invite you to join us for worship and festivities.
Our seminary has been blessed by God in fulfilling its mission. It has been a blessing to church and society by providing men of faith to the pastoral ministry and men and women with valuable theological training to be high-quality leaders in society. May He bless our hands’ work! To Him be all glory and honour.
The program, which combines the opening of the academic year, Founder’s Day and the anniversary celebration includes:
  • 1-2:15 P.M. – Open House at the Seminary (with tour, refreshments, and short recitals of organ and guitar music)
  • 3 P.M. – Worship Service at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 9654 - 74th Ave., Edmonton.
    Guest Preacher: Rev. Dr. Milton Rudnick (CLS President from 1987 to 1992)
  • 5:30 P.M. – Free hors d’oeuvres reception** at Redeemer Lutheran Church following the service.
**Tickets for the reception are free thanks to some donations. We will still be making up some of the costs through free-will offering at the door. Contact the Development Department to put your name on the list. Tickets can then be picked up the tickets at the Seminary or before the service at Redeemer.
Attendees must reserve tickets for the reception in advance by calling the Seminary Development Office.
For more information call the Development Department at the Seminary at 780-474-1468 (extensions 229 & 230).

Watch from home as SEVEN new pastoral candidates receive their first Call into ministry, and TWO vicar/interns are placed for service. We thank God for His marvelous blessing upon these men and their families, and upon His Church here in Canada, as Lutheran servants and congregations are connected through this assignment. Graduating students will also receive their degrees and theological diplomas.
Honoree Fran Wershler will receive the Faith in Life recognition. Nearly two-thirds ($650,000) of the funding needed to train these pastors and vicar/interns comes from congregations and individuals across the Church.

Because we are mission minded, a tithe of our convocation donations will also support the LCC mission work in Southeast Asia, where four of our graduates s…

First Annual Research Forum

On September 11 CLS promoted its first Annual Research Forum. Faculty and a guest presenter discussed the Theological research they completed in the past year.
A graduate school's vocation - as it is for any university - is carried out on a triangular basis, with each point supporting and sustaining the others:
· Teaching (in the sense of formal education)
· Research
· Extension
As an academic place, our school is also a place, then, where knowledge is revisited, built and shared in formal and informal education.
Our seminary supports each professor's research by allocating time and means for formal research. Each year, research projects are received and approved; completed projects are shared with the larger community; and final results of each project are evaluated for publication in various ways: either as research articles in specialized journals, or as a doctoral thesis, or as a book.
The inaugural forum’s guest presenter was Rev. Mark Sander, pastor in Mannsville, AB, who sha…
