My Response

A pre-seminary interview; that is what it was called.  I believe it is still called this today.

Each district of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod has a special committee that meets with potential seminary students in an attempt to judge their fitness to begin trainiing to become a pastor.  (If the potential student is married, his spouse is interviewed as well.)

I can still recall one of the questions which I was asked at my interview.

"Which pastor has influenced you the most in your life?"

"No one," I replied.

The committee was surprised by my answer.  I'm not sure that they liked it.  But it was the God-honest truth.

None of the many pastors I had known stood out. 

Each had pointed me to Christ.

They had done their job.
