- “Contemplate” is the St. Louis seminary’s structured visitation event designed for men interested in the pastoral ministry and women considering deaconess service. The Oct. 7-9 itinerary includes opportunities for participants to visit with the seminary faculty, staff and students, as well as other event attendees and their spouses. Participants will worship with the seminary community in morning and evening chapel services and attend informational sessions on topics such as ministry, spirituality and student services, including the admissions process and relocation.
