Looking for a Summer Vicar?

SUMMER VICARAGE is an opportunity for a congregation to receive help with congregational or other ministry projects from a seminarian on summer break.
Seminarians are licensed to preach (with manuscript supervision) and conduct worship (but not consecrate the elements in Holy Communion or do any "Official Acts" like Baptisms, weddings, and funerals). Summer vicars generally lead worship and preach, teach Bible class, participate in Summer VBS, work in youth ministry, and are involved in congregational visitation. Some churches use a summer vicar for a special project or to test out a new or unique ministry. 
This program has a long history and rich tradition with the seminaries in LCC. A summer vicar can provide a congregation with some additional pastoral needs while a pastor is on sabbatical or having extended travel. Seminarians are not expected to do a summer vicarage, but since courses are not offered over the summer, most students seek a summer job.
A summer vicarage is in lieu of other employment, so a fair stipend, transportation, and housing is expected. A summer vicarage provides additional financial support to students while giving them experience and another aspect of formation as a pastor-in-training.
Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton, has a few students who have expressed interest; please contact President Jim Gimbel for more information at jgimbel@concordiasem.ab.ca or 780-474-1468 x 224.

Attention Congregational Treasurers

THANK YOU for being partners in our ministry and mission through your donations. We continue to need donations in support of general operations, financial aid ... and our recovery from the fire and other related infrastructural work (an additional $55,000). If you are planning to support our ministry, please do not channel monies earmarked for us through the ABC District office (they will return it); please send it directly to Concordia Lutheran Seminary, 7040 Ada Blvd N.W. Edmonton, AB T5B 4E3.  If it is part of a larger pool for other ministries of LCC, please send it on to Lutheran Church-Canada, 3074 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3K 0Y2.  Thank you again.
