A Challenge from President Louise N. Johnson:

Together with you, Wartburg Theological Seminary has been able to do the work to which we have been called – and for the generosity of the people, we are deeply grateful to God. Know that the real impact of your dollars and prayers is made visible in the students you are supporting and the leaders we are able to send into the church.

With you we have been able to do far more than I could have imagined when I accepted the call to serve as President of Wartburg Seminary. With your help, we will keep on finding new ways to make theological education accessible and affordable to women and men whom the Holy Spirit is calling to serve.

You have inspired me to give a personal gift to the Annual Scholarship Fund this Giving Tuesday and I want to challenge you to join me.

Together, we cannot and will not ignore the urgent need to support and prepare leaders for ministry. Like so many generations of Wartburg supporters before us, we will rise to the occasion and serve the church and the God we love.

Can I count on you for the second, third, and one hundredth gift in support of scholarships and the future of the church?
