We are students from over 30+ synods of the ELCA every year, from various denominations and religious traditions, from places throughout the world. We are a diverse faculty that includes experts in the fields of Bible, history, ministry, theology, ethics and more. We are a staff committed to the school and neighborhood, many of whom live in close proximity to the seminary. We build community together in a variety of ways and through all our beautiful diversity, God continues to make us one body.
To build community in any place takes commitment and community life is a deep value at LSTC. There are many ways in which students take leadership in creating meaningful community life both institutionally and informally. The Dean of the Community guides and supports these initiatives.
We are a community that fosters dialog around complex issues, serves our neighbors and creates opportunities for rest and fun.
We are a Reconciling in Christ seminary. Read our RIC statement here.
