Gothenburg Site: Pless

Dr. Pless (in the blue and black sweater) and his class.

Prof. John T. Pless, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions, is in Gothenburg, Sweden, this week, teaching a course on “Baptism and Catechesis” at the Lutheran School of Theology. A few years ago, CTSFW partnered with the Gothenburg school in order to offer the Master of Sacred Theology degree to our brothers in Christ at this European site, and a number of our faculty take frequent trips to teach intensives during the program. The pastors in Dr. Pless’s class represent many countries; he has students from Sweden, Finland, Norway, Latvia, Romania, and Moldova.

Församlingsfakulteten and the chapel. The words on the altar are Swedish, and come from Matthew 7:7: ““Ask, and it will be given to you.”
