I could not have asked for a place that has nurtured my sense of call and come alongside me in such an all-embracing, compassionate, engaged, and Godly way even from a distance. Through the wisdom and care of Wartburg’s faculty and staff, the mission and the work of the Spirit has embraced me warmly and fully.”

Adam KlinkerMaster of Divinity Student

“Wartburg has made seminary and answering my call to ministry possible. I am able to continue to answer my call as a youth minister, pay bills without going into debt, and my wife didn’t have to sacrifice her career here in Virginia.”

“I’m part of a family at Wartburg, even learning from a distance. When I went home to Texas after my first Prolog Week, I was worried I would feel alone. I laugh now to think about that worry because my new Wartburg family studies and learns together, and we text, chat, Zoom, and support each other daily.”

Katie RodeMaster of Divinity Student

“Wartburg feels like home! The community that gathers both in person and online makes me feel like I have a place. and people to journey with through this call. It’s an amazing experience to worship, learn, grow, be challenged, and formed with the love of God surrounding you in the body of Christ.”

Jonathan LysMaster of Divinity Student

“As an asynchronous student it has been marvelous to experience the authentic community professors and my classmates cultivate at a distance. We are not merely completing assignments, but building safe spaces for each of us to be vulnerable with our ideas and our questions.”

Emma GrindeMaster of Divinity Student

I’m honestly shocked how flexible my professors are. I have been traveling unexpectedly for work a lot, and I’m so thankful that the faculty are realistic in the midst of those unplanned things that come up in life and with my job.”
