Wartburg Seminary’s core curriculum centers on the formation of leaders who demonstrate the Twelve Pastoral-Diaconal Practices for the life and mission of the church. The twelve practices have guided the faculty through ongoing curriculum innovations.
“We undertake continual assessment of our curriculum in partnership with synods to monitor the emerging developments in the church and world and make revisions that meet the needs of engaged, compassionate, and wise leaders for the 21st Century church. These practices cultivate a distinctive set of highly relational leadership qualities.”
– Rev. Dr. Craig Nessan, Academic Dean
