The North American Lutheran Seminary (NALS) has announced the call of Rev. Dr. Nathan Howard Yoder as a full-time faculty member and director of the Lutheran Studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary’s Charlotte campus. This partnership will extend the NALS network to the southeastern United States, providing opportunities for regional theological and pastoral formation across the entire North American Lutheran Church (NALC). Yoder, a gifted theologian, has previously served as an adjunct faculty member for NALS and will continue to serve as pastor of St. Martin’s Lutheran Church in North Carolina. This unique partnership will be the first network school, besides the Seminary Center at Trinity School for Ministry, to have a full-time faculty member serving and teaching.
Relive the highlights of this Spring’s North American Lutheran Seminary’s Lutheran Week at Trinity School for Ministry. Featuring guest speakers, panel discussions, and powerful presentations on topics ranging from rural ministry to the sanctity of human life, this event showcased the seminary’s commitment to forming pastors and leaders for faithful ministry. Discover the insights of renowned Lutheran theologian Bo Giertz and gain a deeper understanding of the role of Word and Sacrament in the Church’s life and mission.
Martin Luther taught us that God claims each of us in Holy Baptism and gives us a life mission that will bless others and contribute to human flourishing. To recognize our baptismal calling is what we mean by vocational discernment. It’s a process of listening to the Spirit of God through the Word of Scripture and the community of the church. Specifically, God calls some people as ordained ministers, and it is this vocation that is in urgent demand right now in the North American Lutheran Church (NALC).
Each semester at Trinity School for Ministry, NALS faculty and students lead worship and other Lutheran specific events. NALC pastors and lay leaders are welcome to attend our panels and lectures throughout the week.
In the fall of 2022, the North American Lutheran Seminary announced Dr. Alexander Pierce will serve as Assistant Professor of Historical Theology. Get to know our newest professor and learn more about what he will doing at the NALS!
