The church calls for seminaries to train new generations of both visionary and humble
leaders who are thoroughly steeped in Scripture, in the cultural heritage, and in the
theological traditions of historical Christianity and are prepared to interpret them in
contemporary thought and life. Such leaders are able to model and inspire the deepest
levels of Christian commitment while leading increasingly complex organizations.
Students, on the other hand, with a more practical purpose in their minds, come to the
seminary in search of knowledge, skills for ministry, and a profound experience in
community of the Gospel’s liberating power. LTS tries to respond to the needs of both the
church and the students. We construct programs to nurture four kinds of leaders, ccording
to the students’ calling, that are needed by the church and society.
