Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary held its annual Commencement Service on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. This annual service features both the Graduation of the students who have completed the seminary program, and the Assignment of Calls for pastoral candidates and vicars. This year two men graduated with M.Div. degrees: Aaron Ferkenstad and Kurtis Freimuth.
The assignments were as follows:
- Aaron Ferkenstad—King of Grace Lutheran Church, Golden Valley, Minnesota
- Kurtis Freimuth—Peace Lutheran Church, Kissimmee, Florida
- Noah Thompson—St. John’s Lutheran Church Frankenmuth, Michigan (under Rev. Jeff Luplow)
- Christian Walz—Good Shepherd Lutheran Church Indianola, Iowa (under Rev. Robert Harting)
We pray for God’s blessings on these men as they preach the Gospel to His flocks.
