Summer Seminary Sampler

Summer Seminary Sampler is a residential program at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, that encourages young adults to participate in service projects, explore vocational options in Christ’s church, and think theologically.

Sampler accepts students that have completed their first year of high school through those who have graduated. Students can apply during freshman, sophmore, junior or senior year of high school. 

Summer Seminary Sampler

In 2016 we will host two sessions, one focusing on Racial Reconciliation, and one focusing on Interfaith Dialogue. Because these sessions are so different in program and in practice, we have separate applications to get to know you better for each session. Are you interested in both and unsure which to apply for? Email Emma to talk through your interests, passions and see what might be the best fit for you!
THE CHURCH AND RACIAL RECONCILIATION
June 18 - July 9, 2016

For three weeks, we will dive into the intricacies of racial relations in the United States and the Church, and how debrief how the Church can support our vision of equality and reconciliation. We will spend time living in a diverse community together as we spend the firts half of our time serving in Columbus, Ohio and the second half serving in Jackson, Mississippi. We will travel together as a group, meet Civil Rights leaders and church members leading the charge.

LIVING AND SERVING IN AN INTERFAITH WORLD
July 17 - July 30, 2016

We will spend two weeks living, serving and loving in community as we serve throughout Columbus and Central Ohio. We will spend our mornings together partnering with ministry sites, afternoons with mentors and professors, and evenings will be spent learning about other faith traditions as we share meals with Jewish and Muslim teens, and learn from others in religions what it is like to practice their religion as an immigrant. Sampler has a strong relationship with the Noor Islamic Center and the Columbus Jewish Federation, as well as many others from different religious traditions.
