INTRODUCING SEMINARIAN: Hello! My name is Ethan Stoppenhagen and I am a first year student at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne. I grew up on a farm outside of Ossian, IN and am a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Ossian. I attended the church's parochial school and Norwell High School, and I completed my bachelor's degree at Valparaiso University, where I studied Classics and German. While at Valpo, I was active in campus ministry, Greek Life, and I was a member of Christ College - The Honors College. I also spent a semester abroad in Germany during my junior year. I am excited to be on campus at the seminary and look forward to starting my field work at St. Peter's!
