Take a look at these highlights of several seminary students who are doing their internships. NC Synod Candidacy Committee members make a point to visit our students during their internship experience.
The ELCA requires candidates to complete an approved internship during which they are supervised in a location where they will develop as a rostered minister. Because new and diverse seminary models now permit internships to occur at different points in a candidate’s formation process, there are detailed guidelines for internships that will meet the expectations of the ELCA.
In addition, committee members and staff often visit the seminaries to meet with students and faculty for their endorsement interview. Endorsement is necessary before a seminarian can continue into internship.

Amy, Ruth, and Wendy were at Luther to do the endorsement interview with Seth Wynand.
