By Frederick W. Baltz
The Fall Theological Conference of WordAlone was held Nov. 11-13 at White Bear Lake, MN. One of the featured presenters was Dr. Frederick Baltz, a member of the WordAlone Board of Directors.
Using the Book of Acts as a pattern, Fred sets forth several paradigms which prevailed in the early church, and which should still obtain in the church today.
One of these paradigms is enunciated in Acts 6: 1-4. In response to a complaint, the 'Twelve' summoned the believers, and said to them: "It is not right that we should give up preaching the Word of God to serve tables."
In this particular section, Fred contends that one of the major faults of the church today is that we have replaced the primary duty of 'preaching the Word' (Evangelism) with an almost obsessive emphasis on socio-political concerns (waiting on tables).
Dr. Frederick W. Baltz , pastor of St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Galena, IL, and a member of the Word Alone Board of Directors, has posted an article on the Word Alone website that details this encouraging news.

Baltz Named Seminary President
The Board of Directors of the Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT) has Dr. Frederick W. Baltz unanimously elected Dr. Frederick W. Baltz as the seminary's Interim President. Dr. Baltz is Pastor of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Galena, IL, and will remain in that position while also leading the seminary.
In Dr. Baltz accepting this position, St. Matthew Lutheran Church takes its place as part of the nation-wide ILT campus, sharing their pastor with the Institute, and at the same time receiving some of the real blessings that will come from a close connection with the seminary. "This can open doors for the church like we haven't yet seen," says Dr. Baltz. The founding President and current Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Dennis Bielfeldt said, "The entire staff are all very excited to have Dr. Baltz assuming the position of Interim President and I personally look forward to Dr. Baltz leadership and the opportunity to refocus my responsibilities as ILT's chief academic officer."
Dr. Baltz presented a sixteen-point proposal to the ILT Board to emphasize evangelical outreach at ILT to an extent not yet done by any mainline seminary. The Board gave its approval when it elected Baltz Interim President. "It is very exciting that St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Galena will have an opportunity to help tomorrow's pastors through this relationship," Baltz said. "What congregation gets a chance like this? It is history-making. The church will soon begin reaping the benefits that will, I think, surprise them. We are looking at mission opportunities around the world for members and friends of this congregation, made possible by this cooperative effort with ILT."
Baltz has been a parish pastor for thirty-three years, and has written confirmation curriculum as well as a number of books on various subjects including: As of First Importance: A Theology and Practice of Evangelism for Mainline Churches; The Mystery of the Beloved Disciple: New Evidence, Complete Answer; and Views of Baptism.
