Educating Future Church Leaders

LTSS New Life Fund


Your generosity makes it possible for students to pursue their next steps in ministry as they learn from educators who are leaders in their fields.

The New Life Fund is the lifeblood of Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. Gifts to this fund provide the resources for educating future pastors and leaders of the church. In addition, they provide state-of-the-art teaching technologies for the classroom.

The fund provides important financial flexibility for LTSS, allowing our beloved seminary to respond to our community’s changing needs. Gifts of every size help support day-to-day operations and provide opportunities for students to worship, learn and grow together in faith.
