"I wanted to experience the kind of diversity I'd find in Chicago. I also like the school's philosophy. It trains pastors, but accepts people where they're at. When I visited LSTC, I was impressed with how open-minded and open-armed it is. The professors took an interest in me. They are very down-to-earth."

- Ryan Gerlach, M.Div. student
