Registration Opens for the 2013 Spring Academy

low-res_pdf_SpringAcademy2013_interior-title_web.jpg"Proclaiming Liberty: The Unfinished Work of Freedom, Faith, and Living in a Fallen World" launches Gettysburg Seminary's first Spring Academy. The weeklong opportunities expand the Seminary's traditional Spring Convocation and offer lectures, presentations and workshops, Seminary Ridge Museum early viewing access, worship and other cultural and spiritually enriching activities. 

The April 15-20, 2013 event includes nationally known historian Allen Guelzo, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) chief executive Linda Hartke, Gettysburg Seminary faculty, Seminary Ridge Museum staff, Music, Gettysburg! and the Dearest Home Band.

The Seminary will be offering the 1.5 credit course Proclaim Liberty, an intensive experience that focuses on the diverse and conflicting understandings of liberty and freedom, not simply in the 19th century but in the present as well. The course integrates and includes all the presentations. For questions about this for-credit course, please call the Admissions Office 717-338-3008 or e-mail Julie Stecker at
