Here Am I – Women Responding to God’s Call
March 24-26, 2017
RevGalBlogPals and LTSP are proud to present a retreat specifically for women considering a call to professional ministry in the church. Unfortunately, a women’s call to ministry is not always readily affirmed and so this event aims to provide women of all ages and experience with a space to explore what God might be doing in their life. Talented pastors representing numerous different denominations will share their stories, insights, and experiences about their journey. This event is for women of all ages and denominations, but space is limited! (Register on the form below)
Individual Visit Day
For prospective students interested in sitting in on classes, visiting with students, faculty, and staff, and experiencing a day in the life of the seminary tailored to your individual needs, consider scheduling an Individual Visit Day. This personal visit gives an opportunity for individual questions of vocation and discernment to be addressed as well as questions about financial aid, classes, and seminary life. Please let us know more about you by completing the form below.
