Pastoral Formation

Lutheran CORE hosted a Pastoral Formation Summit on June 21, 2017 at Grand View University in Des Moines with ten invited participants from four different Lutheran church bodies to wrestle with this question: “How can we best raise up, nurture, and support a whole new generation of Lutheran pastors who will be Biblical and confessional in their theology and evangelistic/outreach-oriented in their perspective and practice?”

We are very grateful to all the friends of Lutheran CORE who prayed for the gathering.  We also wish to thank all those who have given a gift in support of this event.

We will be linking information about the summit to this page. Please find papers and audio of some of the presentations in the column to the left.

We pray that God will use this summit on pastoral formation as well as the next two steps being considered by our board to begin a new movement of raising up pastors who know, love, value, believe, and obey the Bible and who are committed to helping people come into a faith relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
