In partnership with the district, Concordia University, St. Paul is offering "Introduction to Prison Ministry" beginning Tuesday, October 13.
This course is free! No prerequisites are involved. Lay people, pastors, and priests of all denominations are welcome.
Jim Seemann, Ph.D. will provide a general overview of strategies to help those who are incarcerated as they find reconciliation and redemption within the context of the Christian Gospel, and to mentor and provide support for those who come to faith. A diverse group of preachers, missionaries, and former prisoners will serve as guest speakers on a number of topics which are sure to challenge and to provide fresh perspectives to this age-old problem.
The course text will be supplied for free. Online learning is also available.
Classes will meet six times Tuesday nights from 7-9pm, Oct 13–Nov 17 in Luther 119. This course will be offered next semester as well.
