Emily has been accepted into the Master of Divinity program and also has received a Trustee scholarship from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN.
“St. Mark has been a formative place for many people who have felt God’s Call to ministry”, said Senior Pastor Travis Fisher, of St. Mark. “We are an encouraging community of faith, who believes strongly that we are to raise up leaders in all vocations, St. Mark has been particularly strong in raising up those who feel passionately about sharing faith though Word and Sacrament Ministry. We are delighted that Emily is pursuing a vocation of ordained ministry. She holds the gifts of a passionate leader, and compassion needed to be a pastor”.
Before moving to St. Paul and beginning her seminary education, Emily will be preaching at St. Mark Ev. Lutheran Church, Davenport, during the weekend worship services June 8th at 5PM and June 9th at 8 and 10AM – All Are Welcome!
