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.

Nearly two-thirds ($650,000) of the funding needed to train these pastors and vicar/interns comes from congregations and individuals across the Church.

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:

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…
