LTS Family Rallies to Surpass Fund Goal

The Lexington Theological Seminary community donated $480,875 to the Ministerial Education Fund for the fiscal year ending July 31, surpassing the $468,000 goal by $12,875.

“We are so grateful to the entire Seminary family,” said LTS President Charisse L. Gillett. “Every gift makes a difference and makes it possible for our students to receive the solid practical and theological foundation that prepares them to meet the needs of today’s Church.”

The final $33,875 came in the last five days of the fiscal year, as supporters rallied to meet – and exceed – the fund goal.

The Seminary’s next project in support of the Ministerial Education Fund is a virtual 5K in September. For more information, visit .


Lexington Theological Seminary is an accredited graduate theological institution and the oldest seminary of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Consistent with the Disciples’ historic commitment to Christian unity, the Seminary is intentionally ecumenical with students, faculty, staff and trustees of various denominations. The Seminary has been preparing leaders for the church since 1865. In the 21st century, LTS transformed its educational model for clergy preparation to integrate the congregation as a full partner in the preparation of pastors for leadership in the church.
