I want to inform all of you about the growth and development of the Institute of Lutheran Theology. I have not been updating my blog regularly because I am pretty busy with ILT these days. If you have not been to our webpage for awhile, please take a look. We are growing with celerity and probity.
- ILT expended more than 28 other ATS accredited institutions in 2014.
- ILT had a headcount greater than 29 other ATS accredited institutions in 2014.
- ILT had a full-time equivalency of students (FTE's) higher than 23 accredited institutions in 2014.
- ILT is now larger than three of the four Canadian Lutheran seminaries.
- Table Talk. This devotional bulletin insert by Pastor Tim Swenson is used by scores of congregations around the country and ILT hopes that more of you know about this and use it. The masters are distributed without charge or a small fee for mailing bulk copies. You may click here to see examples of this product.
- Word at Work Magazine. A seasonal magazine with articles on subjects of interest for all Lutherans, it is distributed free of charge and is also available online here. Register online to join the 4,000 households already on the mailing list.
- Word at Work Classes. No longer do we charge for these excellent video products. Go to this page to see what they have to offer. ILT is currently featuring Dr. Forell’s last lectures on Luther. Other things of interest include Dr. Buddy Mendez’s class on communication and relationships, Pastor Scott Grorud’s confirmation class, and Pastor Moe Redding’s class on discipleship.
- Word at Work Events. If you go here you see that ILT is happy to come to congregations and do theological lectures on various topics. For instance, the Academic Dean, Dr. Jon Sorum just did a series on “What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You: Facing the Crisis in the Church” in Mesa, Arizona, last week. Dr. Paul Hinlicky is just one of many ILT professors willing to do these events.
- Weekly ILT Chapel (and daily sermons from the ILT community). Go here to view past and present chapels.
