Vicars in mission settings
Posted April 7th, 2009
The vicar year is a vital year of instruction for a seminary student. Students learn from hands-on ministry experiences as they are mentored by a supervising pastor. Because of the importance of this field experience, the seminary collaborates with the WELS Board for Home Missions (BHM) in subsidizing the cost of a vicar through the Vicars in Mission Settings Program.
For the past two years we have committed a substantial amount of money from our Scholarship Fund to allow mission congregations that perhaps could not afford a vicar to receive one. We pray that the Lord would allow us to continue to collaborate with the BHM in this important program of gospel outreach and pastoral training.
Generous donations to the seminary’s Scholarship Fund make this collaboration possible. If you would like more information on how you can support the Vicars in Mission Settings Program, please contact the office of mission advancement.
