Find Your Calling

Visit & Connect with Us


Experience the strength and community we foster through diverse ideas and deep relationships.

There’s no better way to connect with our seminary’s Christian, mission-driven community than with a visit. The best way to discover if LTSS is the fit for you is to enjoy the views, meet your seminary family and see for yourself how this moment will lead you closer to your purpose, your calling and your impact on the world.

As soon as you arrive on our campus in beautiful Columbia, South Carolina, you’ll experience what it means to be surrounded by a supportive faculty and fellow seminarians who challenge each other to grow in their faith through worship and learning experiences.

As you tour our grounds, you will feel the strength we foster through diverse ideas and deep relationships. Whether it’s for an open house, an in-person visit or a virtual tour, our helpful faculty, staff and students will show you what makes LTSS a life-shaping place to be.

“It felt like home.” We hear this same refrain again and again from students—and we know you will feel the same. We are here to help you find God’s purpose for your life, prepare you for that purpose and send you on your journey to impact the world.

Live Support with Video Chat


To serve you during this time, we offer live support via Zoom (password: grad) Monday through Thursday from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Connect through Zoom for a live video chat with a member of our staff, email gradschool@lr.edu or contact an enrollment counselor.
