This online companion course provides wonderful input and support.  The lectures are given by Dr. Carl Volz, Professor emeritus of Church History at Luther Seminary, St Paul. The facilitator for this course is Pr. Adam Wutka. He has been serving at two ELCA congregations in central Kansas for the past thirteen years: St. Mark, Great Bend; and St. Paul, Galatia. In addition to preaching and teaching in Bible studies and education programs for adults and youth at his congregations and occasionally at community events or other area congregations, he also teaches in an area-wide Lutheran Confirmation program which he co-founded over a decade ago. Additionally, Pastor Adam is currently teaching Latin to a group of youth in the local homeschool co-op.
 

Access to the class site and orientation information will be given a few days before the class orientation week.
