Giving your support to the North American Lutheran Seminary
The North American Lutheran Church (NALC) seeks to ensure the availability of faithful Lutheran theological education for its pastors, prospective pastors and laypeople. These efforts are centered on the North American Lutheran Seminary (NALS), which provides seminary education for candidates for pastoral ministry in the NALC through a hub center in Pennsylvania and with partner institutions across North America. The NALC also provides scholarships and other programming for its seminarians, supports theological conferences and seminars, and encourages continuing education for both pastors and educators.
THE NEED TO RAISE LEADERS IS GREAT
Approximately nine out of ten NALC pastors are over the age of 40.
75 percent of pastors are over the age of 60.
Since 2010, the NALC has grown to more than 420 congregations and is still growing.
You can direct your financial support to the North American Lutheran Seminary, you can specify your gifts for seminarian scholarships, or you can simply ask that your donations be used wherever the need is greatest.
