    About Wartburg Theological Seminary

    he Board of Directors of Wartburg Theological Seminary invites recommendations and applications for the calling of its next president. Wartburg is a seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. 150 years ago when the European churches were in turmoil, Wilhelm Loehe and the church in Neuendettelsau were inspired to gather and send a cadre of pastors, deaconesses, and missionaries as leaders of Christian communities in Germany, North America, and New Guinea. They were “the sent ones” (die Sendlinge), gathering communities and sending the faithful into their callings in the world. No longer “sheep without a shepherd,” Christ was alive, embodied among them in word and sacrament. Wartburg Seminary was founded to sustain this gathering and sending in America. Our Lord never promised it would be easy. In a retreat at St. Sebald in June, 2010, Wartburg’s Boards faced our financial challenges and renewed the seminary’s vocation to lead in the church. On our website, you can read the faculty’s testimony to “Loehe’s Legacy and the Apostolic Calling of Wartburg Theological Seminary for the Church and World of the 21st Century” which also includes the heart and focus of Wartburg’s approach to forming valued leaders, “The 12 Pastoral Practices”. In this time of challenge in the church and change in theological education, Wartburg is moving forward. We are collaborating with our sister seminaries, renewing our strengths in rural, youth, and global ministries, and fostering ways to form valued leaders in worship-centered communities where learning leads to mission and mission informs learning. Now more than ever, our church needs Wartburg Seminary to do its work and to do it well. Wartburg’s next president will have experienced at least three years of pastoral ministry, with informed imagination for graduate theological education in a new century.
