I chose to attend LSTC because of the Seminex faculty who had arrived one year before. LSTC was a great match for my interests in church music and liturgy. I have fond memories of several LSTC choir tours and other special concerts. In chapel I was able to not only sing but play my trumpet in a brass group made up of other students.
Since then I have had the joy of serving as supervisor to 40 Ministry in Context students and to provide leadership in the spiritual formation program.
I’m grateful for the ministerial formation I received at LSTC and am delighted that my congregation and I can be part of that same process for pastors preparing for ordained ministry in the church.
“LSTC is a bridge between church and world. It was true when I was a student several decades ago and it continues today with the seminary's Public Church curriculum.”
