Seminex, a seminary in exile, occurred in 1974, when Concordia Seminary lost its faculty and students in what became the seminal event of a larger division that affected the entire Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Art Otto had graduated from the seminary just 9 years earlier and was still working with Concordia students at a Missouri Synod church nearby when it all hit the fan. Art shares with us his perspective as a student of the same Concordia Seminary professors who taught from the historical-critical method of the study of scripture.
Tyler describes himself as a student. With hopes to go on to seminary, he is certainly a true student of the Bible and of the Faith. He speaks of starting life in a Fundamentalist environment, finding value in his roots, and his own journey to find his Faith in Jesus Christ.
