Hotels near Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN

Concordia Theological Seminary (CTS) is a private educational institution located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Seminary is affiliated with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) and is dedicated to preparing men and women for service in the LCMS and its partner churches. Concordia Theological Seminary traces its history back to 1844, when the Rev. F.C.C. Wyneken assumed the responsibility for the training of two missionaries in his Fort Wayne parsonage. CTS began formal operations in 1846 to address two specific needs: a clear Lutheran confession coupled with a vigorous missionary effort. Since that time, CTS has trained over 5,000 pastors and missionaries. Historically, the Seminary has exclusively prepared men but has recently begun educating women to serve as deaconesses.

Today, CTS enrolls over 300 seminarians. Students can study for and earn professional, master’s and doctoral degrees, including: Master of Arts in Religion; Master of Divinity, Master of Arts leading to Deaconess Certification; Master of Arts in Deaconess Studies; Master of Sacred Theology; Doctor of Ministry; and Doctor of Philosophy in Missiology. CTS offers a number of its Deaconess, pre-seminary and SMP courses and programs online, as well as sponsors numerous continuing educational programs and seminars at locations throughout the United States. Concordia Theological Seminary is accredited by the Commission on Accrediting of The Association of Theological Schools.

CTS’s campus is situated on 191 acres of the former Kramer family homestead in Fort Wayne. The Synod acquired the land and, from 1955 and 1957, constructed what was originally the campus of Concordia Senior College. The campus was designed by Eero Saarinen, whose other credits include the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. The Senior College program was relocated to Ann Arbor in 1975 with CTS taking its place.

Concordia Theological Seminary is well known for its music department and sponsors several ensembles, including the Chapel Choir, Schola Cantorum, Kantorei, and the Seminary Children’s Choir.
