Each year, Wartburg Theological Seminary counts on partnerships with individuals like you in the work of forming leaders for God’s mission.

Support from individuals, congregations, foundations, and others is critical to Wartburg Theological Seminary’s continued mission to form bold leaders for the sake of the gospel and the future of the church.  We want to make it easy for you to express your faithful generosity, and offer a number of ways you can give.

Gifts from individuals and congregations provide more than 35% of the seminary’s current operating budget. We ask you to prayerfully consider becoming a partner in this ministry by making a gift to the Wartburg Seminary Fund.
