EDMONTON – Concordia Lutheran Seminary (CLS) has announced that Rev. Dr. John P. Hellwege, Jr. has accepted the call to serve as Assistant Professor of Theology at the seminary.

“After much prayer and deliberation, I am convinced that it is God’s will that I should accept the call to serve as Assistant Professor of Theology at Concordia Lutheran Seminary,” Dr. Hellwege writes in his acceptance letter. “I am looking forward to joining you at CLS and serving our Lord and His Church in Canada.”

Dr. Hellwege recieved his Master of Divinity in 1999 and a Master of Sacred Theology in 2000, both from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2009 he received a PhD in Historical Theology, also from Concordia Seminary, with a thesis discussing American Lutheran perceptions of pre-war Nazi Germany.

Dr. Hellwege has served the last seven years as pastor at Emmaus Lutheran Church in St. Louis, Missouri. In addition to parish ministry, he has served as an adjunct professor at Concordia University (Seward, Nebraska) from 2003-2004, and as adjunct professor at Concordia University (Mequon, Wisconsin) from 2008-present. He has also served as a guest lecturer at Concordia Seminary (St. Louis, Missouri) since 2009.

Dr. Hellwege also served as a freelance editor for Concordia Publish House from 2009-2011. He has contributed to three book projects as an editor and writer: The Lutheran Difference, Lutheranism 101, and Law & Gospel: How to Read and Apply the Bible. His academic research has received two awards from Concordia Historical Institute, and he has been asked to give a plenary paper at Concordia Theological Seminary’s (Ft. Wayne, Indiana) upcoming 2015 Annual Symposium on the Lutheran Confessions.

Dr. Hellwege plans to begin teaching at CLS this fall.

    Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about using a love spell or any spell for that matter but I was absolutely shocked when Tim called me after I had you guys cast my “Return My Lover” spell for me. It wasn’t 24 hours that I had my spell cast that he came back to me (practically on his knees). He broke up with me over a month ago and now we are happier than ever. Thank you all!
