(Fort Wayne, IN)-Concordia Theological Seminary (CTS) will host its first ever theological academy for high school men considering the pastoral ministry, June 13-25. Called Christ Academy, this two-week intensive summer academy will focus on theological study, worship and service while being framed by the rich life of the seminary community. Students will be housed in seminary dormitories alongside current seminary students.
"Christ Academy will fill a need in our church by allowing high school age men to come together in fraternity and community to study God's Word and receive His many gifts. It is important that we as a church and her seminary continue to foster a heart of service in our young men as they make many decisions about their future," explained the Rev. Scott Klemsz, Director of Admissions at CTS. "Currently our church doesn't offer this type of comprehensive program for high school age men and Concordia Theological Seminary is committed to the churches service in this area."
Each morning the academy will be devoted to the study of theology in each of the traditional divisions of seminary education-history, systematic (doctrine), and exegesis. Seminary professors will lead engaging convocations on a variety of topics that include: The Lively Adventure of the Pastoral Ministry; Pastoral Ministry in Crisis Situations; Biblical Perspectives on Dating, Marriage, and Gender Roles; Cults, Sects, and World Religions; and Lutherans and Other Denominations. In the afternoons, the academy will focus on service projects in the Fort Wayne area, athletics, and a fun trip to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio.
Applications and fee information will be offered in the March edition of Thy Kingdom Come, the seminary's high school newsletter, and other seminary publications. If you would like to be on a list to receive information about Christ Academy or to receive the seminary's various publications, please contact the Admissions Office directly by calling 1-800-481-2155.
