The Board of Regents of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, has reappointed Dr. Dean O. Wenthe to another five-year term as seminary president. Wenthe, 61, has served in the post since 1996.
The board made its decision unanimously at a Dec. 2 meeting at Salem Lutheran Church in Tomball, Texas.
Board Chairman Rev. Wayne Graumann, who also serves as Salem’s pastor, said the Fort Wayne seminary “has been blessed under President Wenthe’s sparkling leadership and stands on the threshold of new and expanded ways to serve the church in its mission to share the Good News of Christ, the Savior, with all the world through faithful pastors, deaconesses, and church workers.”
Wenthe said he is “honored and humbled” by the reappointment. “The exemplary work of Chairman Wayne Graumann in leading and supporting the seminary’s ever-enhanced service to the church positions us for excellence and growth,” Wenthe said. “Indeed, the entire Board of Regents has exhibited extraordinary dedication and brought great wisdom and churchmanship to the calling of forming missionary and compassionate pastors and deaconesses.”
