What others are saying:

“I really enjoyed the evening chats after the events, the 'dorm-room' theology, as well as getting to know the professors.”

“The most memorable experience for me was being able to meet the professors and having time to wrestle with theological questions.”

“I would recommend that anyone go no matter their degree of interest in the deaconess program. It is an amazing experience. I felt so welcome. CTS is an amazing place that I hope to attend if at all possible.”

“Visiting the campus has greatly helped my decision in choosing a seminary. I love the community of the Fort and I learn a lot while I am there. I look forward to working on my MDiv at Fort Wayne.”

"The highlights of Phoebe Academy for me were gettng to sing with the choir, the Fireside chat, the banquet and reception.”

“It definitely showed me some directions a deaconess could take that I hadn't thought of before.”
