Congratulations to our Graduating Seminarians!

Two Good Shepherd members, Amalia Vagts and Daniel Grainger, will graduate from Wartburg Theological Seminary this Sunday, May 16!

Both Daniel and Amalia have been approved for ordination in the ELCA. Daniel is in conversation with the Central/Southern Illinois Synod for first call. Amalia is currently in conversation with the Grand Canyon synod of the ELCA for first call. Each of these two candidates for ministry hopes to hold their ordination service at Good Shepherd. Hopefully Good Shepherd will host two ordination services this summer!
