Seniors, this is for you!
St. Paul Lutheran Church in Davenport, Iowa, has hosted a nationally distinguished pastoral residency program for the last 15 years. Two gifted first-call pastors spend the first two years of their ministry immersed in a dynamic congregation, heightening leadership skills and pastoral habits in profound ways. It’s full-time ministry with full salary and benefits as well as other program extras, geared especially toward those who enjoy active ministry, academic reflection, personal feedback, and collaborative work with a large, interdisciplinary staff.
For more information and helpful video introductions to the program, visit the pastoral residency page on the church’s website.
St. Paul Lutheran Church is now receiving applications for senior seminarians who would begin their pastorate at St. Paul mid-August 2021. The church works closely with the graduating senior and his or her home synod bishop to help facilitate ordination and arrange for the call.
