George “Bud” Onstad will serve as the chaplaincy consultant of the new Military Chaplaincy Program at Lutheran Southern Seminary, Columbia, S.C.
The program is scheduled to open in the 2009-10 academic year.
It will offer chaplaincy-related courses for the seminary’s master of divinity students as well as advanced classes for chaplains stationed near the seminary (July, "Wanted: More military chaplains"). A Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation grant will help develop the program.
