Greetings in Christ, WTS supporter and friend!

I am delighted to have been called as the 15th president of Wartburg Theological Seminary. Wartburg Seminary is home to me in a very fundamental sense; I had a wonderful formative experience as a student here, graduating in 1997, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to give back to a community that has given so much to me. 

I invite you to offer your bold support to our mission. Every dollar received will provide direct tuition support to a future ELCA pastor, deacon or public minister. Your gift will bless not only individual students, but the whole church; please partner with us as we live into this exciting vision!

Gratefully yours,

Rev. Dr. Kristin Johnston Largen, President
