From April 25–29, Grow in Grace, the institute for pastoral growth at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, hosted over 400 people for the annual Celebration of Ministry retreats in San Antonio, Texas. This was truly a massive celebration. Having to postpone retreats for the last two years, Grow in Grace welcomed pastors and their wives who were celebrating 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 25, 26, 27, 35, 36, and 37 years since graduating from the seminary. These retreats build relationships with ministry peers and offer encouragement through worship, Bible studies, workshops, and presentations.
Though these workshops and Bible studies are a key part of the retreats, fellowship with classmates, worship services, and a beautiful location also play a part in the experience. Next year plans are already underway. Seminary graduates from the classes of 1988, 1998, 2013, and 2020 are invited to join us on the River Walk in San Antonio. Watch your inboxes for your Save the Dates that get mailed out on Call Day.
