The Master of Divinity — Co-operative Model
The Master of Divinity Co-operative Model (Co-op) at LTSP delivers excellence in education, formation, and practical experience. Students graduate in three years with a full Master of Divinity, a strong foundation in spiritual formation, and three years of congregational leadership experience. Designed for students who bring exceptional creativity, maturity, and a proven track-record of leadership, the Master of Divinity — Co-operative Model alleviates some of the costs incurred in more traditional models of theological education by providing for the student’s tuition, fees, and health insurance.

- Benefit from strong and consistent spiritual direction throughout your program.
- Participate in a ground-breaking model of theological education.

With the gracious support of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation, the Co-op program is the first of its kind in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
