Experience Seminary Life at LSTC

Prospective students are welcomed as they come on campus to participate in the Seminary Sampler

Join us March 4-6 with options for March 7

First year MDiv student Jacqueline Miller remembers clearly her first impression of LSTC: “The students and faculty were very welcoming and intentional about building community,” she says of her experience at Seminary Sampler, LSTC’s bi-annual program to help prospective students become familiar with the campus, community, and academic programs.

This year, Seminary Sampler will be held in-person from March 4-6, with additional options for March 7. During Seminary Sampler, prospective students will meet faculty, staff, and students, discuss options for housing and financial aid, have the opportunity to sit in on a class, and join us for dinner and worship. This year, students will also have the chance to visit our new campus location!

At the event, prospective students will get an overview of LSTC including discussions of degree programs, our curriculum, and the candidacy process. Spouses and partners are invited to attend.
