Event Information

Christ Academy consists of three important elements: confessional catechesis, liturgical worship, and fun life together. This tradition of learning, worship, and fun at Christ Academy: College provides an opportunity for college students to stay on the beautiful campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, take classes from our world-class professors, and worship with the CTSFW community.

This long weekend retreat is particularly great for students who are considering a future at the Seminary, and for those who seek to serve and love God and their neighbors in other vocations. Don’t miss this opportunity, especially since there is no cost for the whole weekend! Check us out and join the tradition!

  • Practical (the application of theology to life)
