Luther Sem, AGORA deepen connections

A celebration of a new partnership between Luther Seminary and AGORA, a longtime ministry providing Christian leadership training for a multicultural world, will take place at Luther on June 9. AGORA formally aligned with Luther’s Global Mission Institute, in the fall of 2012 to fulfill the shared mission of equipping congregations and leaders for expanded Christian mission and ministry.

“We will celebrate the new relationship, as well as recognize the 28 students who completed the coursework in the last year,” explained Sharon Baglyos, AGORA’s director. “The affiliation gives us credibility and accountability, increasing the trust in our program.”

The event will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Chapel of the Cross in Northwestern Hall at Luther Seminary. Worship will be led by global musicians and students from AGORA’s Christian Leadership program. An international potluck will begin at 5:00 p.m., and AGORA students will be recognized for completion of the course “Ministries in Congregational Care.”

The public is invited to this event. For more information, call 651/641-3228, or visit www.luthersem.edu/gmi/agora.aspx.
