Sara Cogsil attended the Summer Seminary Sampler program after her high school graduation in 2003. During her three-week stay at Trinity she gained new perspectives on the world and ministry, and was delighted to find like-minded young people who shared her passion to learn and serve Christ’s church. Her call to pastoral ministry solidified as she worked and studied during her three weeks of Sampler, and after college she decided to pursue a seminary education at Trinity Lutheran Seminary. For two summers, Sara gave back to the Sampler program by counseling the 2008 and 2010 Samplarians, and realized she had gifts for working with this particular age group. Sara graduated with her M.Div. in May 2013. She has received a call to University Lutheran in East Lansing, Michigan, and looks forward to her ordination in December at Trinity Lutheran Seminary, in Gloria Dei Chapel.
