In the Classroom...

Our world-class faculty care about our students and about their learning. Because class sizes are small, your professors will get to know you and help you become the best formed servant for Christ’s Church. From your first class to your last, our faculty will walk with you, teach you, guide you and work to form you in body, mind and spirit into a faithful servant of the Word.

Teaching Beyond the Classroom

At CTSFW we recognize that a great deal of learning happens outside the classroom. That’s why members of our faculty go out of their way to engage with student beyond the classroom. From lunch in the dining hall to dinners in their homes, our faculty love to spend time with our students.

A part of getting to know you as a student is learning to love and care for you even as you will care for God’s people as a pastor. We love as we are loved, and your experience with the faculty at CTSFW will provide an example and lay a foundation for your future ministry. Our faculty will be teachers and mentors throughout your seminary journey.

Meet Our Faculty

The finest theological faculty in the world, bar none.

“A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.”

Luke 6:40, ESV

Gemütlichkeit

This German word means warmth, friendliness, congeniality. Every Friday after classes and afternoon prayers, professors and students alike, along with their families, gather in the commons for a time of relaxation and conversation.

“No calling pleases me as well as that of schoolmaster; nor would I more gladly accept any other calling.”

Luther SL 12, 1611
