Requirements for Vicarage Assignment

Successful completion of all academic requirements on the Preseminary, Seminary I and Seminary II levels is ordinarily considered a prerequisite for vicarage. Eligibility for vicarage assignment is determined by the Committee on Certification and Placement through the Registrar’s Office. For more information on the Vicarage program, click here. Upon endorsement of the faculty, students are assigned a vicarage by the Council of Presidents of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

Requirements for Deaconess Internship

Following completion of course work, deaconess students are placed in a congregation or institution in a deaconess internship position for a period of one year. This opportunity for application of studies and skills is overseen by the supervising pastor and supported by the Deaconess Internship Coordinator. Evaluations and periodic reviews provide guidance in the professional development and growth process.

Placement of the Pastoral Candidate

Certification of the candidate for placement will be the responsibility of the faculty. Placement of the candidate will be by the Council of Presidents of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in consultation with the seminary placement officer.

Placement of the Diaconal Candidate

Deaconess certification is granted by the faculty to students who fulfill program requirements for the Master of Arts and who display dedication and readiness for service as a deaconess. Upon endorsement by the faculty, students are placed into their first call by the Council of Presidents and the Synodical Board of Placement.
