FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTSFW)—From February 15–17, the biannual Christ Academy: Confirmation Retreat will take place at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne (CTSFW), covering the topic of Baptism as taught by the Rev. Dr. Arthur A. Just Jr. “It is an absolute joy to be able to expose our Christ Academy: Confirmation Retreat students to the world-class faculty here at CTSFW,” the Rev.

This is truly an opportunity that our students will treasure their whole lives.”
