Profile of the Seminary
Based in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, we are the leading urban Lutheran seminary training students to serve in the global community. True to our Lutheran heritage and built on a foundation of intellectual rigor, we equip students for visionary ministry. Students receive the skills they need to be leaders in the public church—the people of God bringing faith and action into their communities and the world. Here, students receive a well-rounded education from renowned faculty, preparing them for a purposeful vocation in a pluralistic and global world.
As a Reconciling in Christ seminary, LSTC seeks to offer hospitality and welcome to all who enter LSTC's academic programs. Following Jesus Christ, whose reconciling love bridged barriers and made strangers friends, we seek to welcome and learn from one another's particularity-including but not limited to one another's race, national or ethnic origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, social status and theological diversity.
