About C.F.W. Walther

The Walther Society is named in honor of Dr. C.F.W. Walther, a towering figure of 19th-century Lutheranism. His knowledge of and unwavering commitment to the Lutheran confessions and the theology of Martin Luther provide a firm foundation for the growth and development of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). Walther served as the first president of the Seminary and the LCMS.

“The Gospel does not say, ‘You must do good works.’ Rather it fashions us into human beings, into creatures who cannot help but serve God and fellow human beings. Without a doubt, a precious effect.”
-Dr. C.F.W. Walther

 “I feel like I’m walking with our donors because they are invested in what I am doing. I truly do believe they are part of my ministerial formation.”
-Matt Bohlmann (’19)
