CLS Founding President Called Home

W. Theophil Janzow, the founding president of CLS, passed away on Saturday, August 21.  His funeral will be held on Thursday, August 26 at St. John Lutheran Church, Seward, Nebraska.

Dr. Janzow served as seminary president from 1984 to 1987.  Before coming to Edmonton, he served at Concordia College (now Concordia University), Seward, Nebraska, including fourteen years as its president.

Dr. Janzow was truly God's gift to us and so much of his legacy still lives at the seminary. Thank God for him and his work.
