Lexington Theological Seminary offers an online model of graduate study that provides students with a holistic approach to pastoral development in which the intellectual, practical and spiritual are fully integrated throughout the curriculum. Rooted in the local congregation, your education is primarily hands-on. Lexington makes it possible to answer your call where you live and work.

Students at Lexington are diverse in age, denomination, race, geographic location, and gender. They have one thing in common: they all desire to learn more about the life of faith and answer a call. Students at LTS come from a variety of backgrounds; our students are engineers and teachers, nurses and parents, recent graduates and second-career pastors. At Lexington you will find your place in a community. Won’t you join us?

Learning through serving

At a glance, this model:

  • Establishes the congregation as a primary center for learning
  • Provides a pastoral mentor to each student
  • Uses short-term courses of two to eights weeks rather than three-month courses.
  • Incorporates distance learning and short-term residency experiences.
  • Develops online, interactive covenant groups with students and professors.
  • Involves parish ministers in the courses and covenant groups to provide practical counsel.
  • Operates on a year-round schedule and monthly registration.
  • 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.
