We are an Internship support congregation. Every year we partner with Wartburg Theological Seminary to host a third year seminary student.

Wartburg recently announced a 3 year fundraising campaign, Engaging God's Future. The goal is to strengthen the church through the formation of student leaders for God's mission.
