Chingboi Guite

"LSTC is a very Christ-centered place. The spiritual side of what happens here is as important as the academics. Even in the advanced studies classes, we'll have a deep academic discussion and then the professor will ask, 'What does this mean to us as a believing community?' What we learn is not just an academic exercise, it needs to apply back to us as a faith community."

- Chingboi Guite, Th.M./Ph.D. student
