Next InterTerm — June 13-17, 2022

The 2022 June Interterm residential class at the NALS Center (Trinity School for Ministry, Ambridge, PA), will focus on “best practices” for congregational renewal. Particularly, we’ll learn together about worship, Catechesis, and discipleship in the Lutheran Tradition*. Our teaching theologians include the Rev. Dr. Andrew Weisner and the Rev. Dr. Nathan Yoder. Together we’ll discuss the centrality of worship and discipleship as God-given means of renewal. There will be evening and afternoon opportunities for breakout sessions led by a team of pastors and theologians. 

The Catholic Luther: Engaging the Work of Dr. David Yeago — On Friday, June 17 a symposium sponsored by the NALS will hold a symposium to honor the work of Dr. David Yeago upon his retirement. Attendees of June Term (including those auditing) will be able to attend free of charge. 

All Seminarian Retreat — The all seminarian retreat will take place after the symposium from June 17-18.

InterTerm Intensive Classes

Unique opportunities to advance your learning and leadership

Every January and June, students can take advantage of one or two-week-long intensive courses offered by the North American Lutheran Seminary and Trinity School for Ministry.

During these weeks, online students have the opportunity to join residential students in completing required coursework. Pastors and lay people often use the classes offered during these weeks for continued personal and professional development, worshiping, and learning alongside both their peers and future leaders of the church.

Note: For all candidates seeking ordination in the NALC, you are required to take two, one- week June residential intensive sessions as outlined in the Standards of Theological Education.
