Admissions

We understand that it isn’t always easy to answer the call to ministry.

LTS offers a unique program with flexibility to meet the diverse needs of people who wish to pursue a theological education at various stages of life–whether recent college graduates or second-career seekers.

CONGREGATION-BASED SEMINARY EDUCATION
The new program offers students the opportunity to stay closer to home, and coursework is coupled with congregational ministry. Our students go beyond simply understanding the scripture; they learn to interpret it for the church and to apply what they are learning in class to the real-life setting of a congregation.

PASTORAL MENTORS AND COVENANT GROUPS
Every student is assigned a pastor as a mentor. Students also participate in a covenant group made up of fellow students, a professor and a pastor.

FLEXIBLE ONLINE AND INTENSIVE ON-SITE COURSES
This new model of education emphasizes both flexibility of location and time. Most classes will be available online. The remaining classes will be short, intensive courses at the seminary. Intensives are held twice per calendar year, in January and June for 10 days each session.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR NEW VOICES
The new model offers flexibility to a variety of students, from those seeking a degree to lay leaders who want to enhance their service to the church by furthering their education. It also reaches more students who represent the textured, diverse face of today’s church and the depth of voices needed to shape the church of tomorrow.

FAITHFUL, ACCREDITED THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION
Lexington Theological Seminary is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools.  Founded in 1865, LTS is the oldest seminary of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), now embracing the newest form of shaping church leaders.
