Continuing Education

Lexington Theological Seminary understands itself to be a theological resource center for the church. Accordingly, education programs for clergy and laity offered through the Continuing Education Program are designed to enhance the life of the church while providing learning opportunities for specific constituencies of the church. Continuing Education Units of credit as recommended by the Society for the Advancement of Continuing Education for Ministry (SACEM) are awarded for all programs upon request of the participant. Continuing Education Programs are not available for degree credit.

Continuing Education Programs offered include the Lay School of theology (LST@LTS), Elders’ Workshops, Lay Ministers School, and a variety of one-day workshops.

Elders’ Workshops

Periodically, the Seminary offers one-day workshops specifically for persons serving as elders in Disciples congregations. Topics include various subjects on the role of the elders – serving communion, visitation, and public prayer. There are also topics on the history of eldership and biblical subjects. The Seminary also occasionally provides workshops for elders in other cities and states. For information contact Bill Turner, 859-280-1253, or e-mail:
