The Weekend is an event specifically designed for those discerning a call to ministry. Through a spirituality-focused retreat including ancient and new worship, small groups, short talks (#Semtalks) from our faculty, and time with the seminary community, participants will be invited to wonder, imagine, and learn how and in what directions God may be calling them.

Upcoming Dates for great times to visit, experience and discern:

  • February 16-18 (Philadelphia Campus)
  • April 6-8 (Gettysburg Campus)

The Weekend Is...

… The perfect chance for you to spend intentional time wondering how God can use you to serve the church and the world. You’ll be invited to wonder, imagine, and learn through:

  • worship, both ancient and new
  • #SemTalks
  • Small groups conversations
  • Hanging out with other participants, students and their families, faculty, and staff
  • Hearing and sharing stories

The Weekend is not:

  • A commitment to attend seminary
  • A sales pitch
  • For Lutherans only
  • Just for people wanting to be pastors
  • Something to stress about.


The Weekend was created to help you sift out where God might be calling you next. This is such an important question and we don’t want money to be a barrier, so we offer it at no cost to the participants. Your housing, meals, and registration are all covered by United Lutheran Seminary.

Additionally, we are happy to offer a shuttle from regional airports – please indicate on your registration if you will need shuttle service.
