CTSFW to Celebrate Opening of 172nd Academic Year

CTSFW President Dr. Lawrence R. Rast Jr. at Opening Service in Kramer Chapel

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTSFW)—On Tuesday, September 5, 2107, the Concordia Theological Seminary (CTSFW), Fort Wayne, community will celebrate the beginning of our 172nd academic year. CTSFW President Dr. Lawrence R. Rast Jr. will serve as preacher for the Opening Service at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern) in Kramer Chapel. If you can’t be on campus, watch live at www.ctsfw.edu/DailyChapel or www.facebook.com/CTSFW.

We will welcome future pastors and deaconesses arriving for their first year of studies, returning students and those seeking advanced degrees such as the S.T.M, D.Min. and Ph.D. “We are delighted to have men and women from across the United States and the world at CTSFW to be formed as faithful servants who will serve Christ’s Church,” commented CTSFW Academic Dean Dr. Charles A. Gieschen.  “The time they spend in the classroom, in fieldwork and in daily worship lays the foundation for their service in congregations in small towns, urban centers and the international mission field.”

The need for church workers is high and CTSFW remains dedicated to forming servants in Jesus Christ who teach the faithful, reach the lost and care for all.
