LIFE: Living in faith everyday

What is LIFE?

LIFE - Living in Faith Everyday

Formerly known as the School for Lay Ministry, LIFE's purpose is to provide adult Christian education in the areas of the Old and New Testament, Lutheran Confessions, Pastoral Care, Worship & Liturgy, and Church History. To do this, we draw on the gifts of seminary professors, those who serve in specialized ministries, and others. This program serves the synods of Northwestern Minnesota and Eastern North Dakota and is open to any person, lay or rostered in the two synods.
