We welcome Jenny Pietz, Assistant Professor of New Testament, for a service of Holy Communion.
A secondary election is being held for a student council position that was vacant after the first election. Ballots are now open for the MDiv DL Senior Representative. Please note that only MDiv DL Seniors may vote for this representative.
Please use a Luther Seminary email address to access the ballot form.
The Distributed Learning MA CYF/LIM/CM/Lutheran Ministries Program Representative was also vacant after the first election. Because there were no nominees who accepted their nomination in either election, that position will remain empty for now. Inquiries or questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Elections will be open from now until Thursday, October 19, at 12 p.m. (noon) CST.
Thank you for taking the time to vote; your voice is important! If you have any questions, please reach out to the Election Commissioners (below).
Rachel Wyffels and Sarah Yotter

The only person that will see your name and how you identify is Student Council Secretary, Ashley Teter, who will then pass your name along to the proper representative. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
