Collaborative: Online Learning & Congregation Partner

Wartburg Seminary launched a new program in the Fall of 2016 that meets the needs of the church for leadership formation through collaborative partnership between students, congregations, ELCA Synods, and the seminary.

Program Includes

  • Learn. Lead. Serve.  Unlike most theological education, students serve in a congregation or other ministry ALL four years while also taking courses online to complete their degree.
  • Reduce the need for educational student loan borrowing.
  • Real-time classroom participation.
  • Visit campus two times per year
  • Learning sites provide pastoral leadership in congregations

I am so pleased to be part of the Wartburg Theological Seminary Community! The Collaborative Learning track has been a wonderful experience that has allowed me to pursue my calling into ministry while staying at home. The support from the staff and students has been a tremendous help in my studies and I feel a strong connection with everyone there on campus. Without this program, I would not have been able to begin my journey into this new vocation in life.
