Continuing Education: A Year-Round Opportunity

FORT WAYNE, IN (CTS)—Pastors serve their congregations year-round so it only makes sense for Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana, to offer year-round continuing education opportunities. The list of Continuing Education sites can be found below. As it becomes available, specific information for each site will be posted at Online registration can be completed at the same site. You may also e-mail or phone Kara Mertz at 260-452-2103 for additional information.

Having more CTS Continuing Education sites available across the United States offers pastors additional opportunities for personal enrichment. “What a joy to sit at the feet of another and soak in new knowledge, expand our theological landscape and join together in doctrinal debate,” offers Prof. Jeffrey Pulse, Director of Continuing Education at CTS. “When our theological batteries are recharged, our congregations reap the benefits as we bring all we have learned into the pulpit and the Bible studies.”

Prof. Pulse also reminds us that the benefits are not just for pastors, continuing education is for laypeople as well, “As a pastor it is a great blessing to have an educated laity, and again, what a great joy for them to drink deep at the well of the waters of life and be nourished by the bread of God’s Word.”
