June 19 - July 1, 2017
Trinity Lutheran Seminary - Columbus, OH
Entering Grades 9-12 | 2017 Graduates
The mission of the Summer Seminary Sampler is to challenge & assist young people to think about their Christian vocation and
how they may choose to live their faith out in a church or secular occupation. Samplarians experience three basic components of theological education—academic learning, serving the people of
God in various contexts, and further developing spirituality.
How much does Summer Sampler cost?
Sampler is paid for by grants and donors, so it’s free, AND Samplarians get paid! Each student can receive a stipend at the end of the session. Trinity provides $100 and encourages students to raise $300 for a two-week session which they will receive in addition to what Trinity provides. If raised, this would allow students a stipend of about $200 per week.
