Statement as issued Tuesday by Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne:
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTS) — Dr. Dean Wenthe, president emeritus and professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind., has announced he has accepted the call to serve as president of the Concordia University System (CUS) of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. He has been serving as its interim president since last fall. Wenthe will continue teaching at CTS while serving in his new capacity.
“What a great decision by our Synod,” said CTS President Dr. Lawrence Rast. “Dr. Wenthe’s skills in leadership and communication, his rich understanding of Lutheran identity, and his deep dedication to our Lord and His Church will foster growth and support for our Concordia University System.”
There are 10 colleges and universities in the CUS offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees. While each serves a diverse community, the common goal remains to develop Christian leaders for the church, community and the world.
