Seminary Supports Continuing Education through January Symposium

Seminary Supports Continuing Education through January Symposium
For release Tuesday, June 28, 12:00 PM
Plymouth, Minnesota

The first ever Free Lutheran Seminary Symposium will be held on the Seminary campus Wednesday through Friday, January 11-13, 2023. Anyone who would benefit from the training provided is invited to attend. This year’s theme will consider the writings of several early Christians and Church Fathers.

President Wade Mobley commented, “Patristics provides not only a historical context for the work of the church but helps us understand and spread the gospel today.”

The Seminary Symposium replaces the past January Term format. The compact nature of the event allows for scholarly presentation with interaction on given topics. The event will begin with a dinner reception on Wednesday night, January 11, and continue all day on Thursday. Guest instructors will include renowned John of Damascus scholar Dr. Daniel Janosik (Southern Evangelical Seminary), Pastor Matthew Ballmann (Pastor at Trinity-San Antonio), and Pastor Andrew Kneeland (Free Lutheran Seminary graduate and PhD candidate at Concordia Seminary-St. Louis). Participants may also continue the week by attending the Georg Sverdrup Society Forum on Friday morning, January 13.

For more information about this event visit Registration and lecture descriptions are forthcoming. The symposium format is best suited for in-person engagement, but content will be archived for later use.
