This week, CUAA alumni at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis and Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne received their calls or vicarage placements.
Second-year seminary students receive vicarage and internship assignments while fourth-year students receive their first calls to serve as pastors and deaconesses in Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod congregations throughout the country.
We congratulate and celebrate our most recent crop of Concordia University Ann Arbor alumni who received their placements and calls this week. We pray the Lord’s blessings on their ministry work ahead.
