foundersHistory
Modeled after similar continuing education events for pastors and spouses in Germany, Dr. J. Michael Reu designed and directed the first academy  in 1937 at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA. It was the first Lutheran continuing education event in this country, with an original registration fee of $5.00 for the 10 days. The academy remained an annual event in Dubuque for the next 31 years, with a brief respite during World War II. Before it was moved to Colorado in 1969, Dr.William Streng, Professor of Christian Education at Wartburg, expanded the format of the academy to include pastors, spouses, and families in a setting that focused on a blend of theological education and relaxation. Today the Luther Academy of the Rockies may be the only LifeLong Learners event in the country that includes education for the entire family.
