Brief History

Chartered in 1845 by Ezra Keller and a group of pastors who broke with the German church and created the English Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Ohio. The new synod voted unanimously to establish a theological and literary institution that would serve the educational and cultural needs of new immigrants and new communities. Wittenberg remains the third oldest Lutheran college in the country.
