Ordained and Lay Ministry
Ordained and Lay Ministry

There is a place for you at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (LTSS). Whether you are being called to serve a congregation or those in a hospital, young people through faith formation or serve in the community through a non-profit, this is the place where you will be engaged and formed to serve the church of the 21st century.

At LTSS, our curriculum is designed to make you think – across disciplines, across centuries, even across cultures. As one of our alums has said, "Suddenly, theology is alive. Old scriptures offer new perspectives. Here, we do a great deal of thinking about complex things, but we're also intentional about keeping it simple – understanding the world through the Jesus' lens. That's important."
