Visiting the Seminary
Is God calling you to become a leader in the church? Do you feel called to study theology but are not sure what direction to take? Is God calling you to something new? If these questions are your questions, why not “Come and See” The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) and get input from faculty, staff, and current students to help in the discernment process.
