Come and See

  • Is God calling you to become a leader in the church?
  • Do you feel called to study theology but are not yet sure which program is right for you?
  • Do you have a hunch that God is calling you to something new?

LTSP offers several ways to reflect on these questions

Wet Toes Weekend

Next event TBA

Wet Toes WeekendThis is your chance to get your feet a little bit wet with what it’s like to live on a seminary campus. It’s for anyone who is thinking about earning a seminary degree, and we still have space available for you. The “Wet Toes Weekend” is a great way to get a taste of what seminary life is like. We are here to accompany you as you live through your adventure of discerning how you will respond to the invitation of Jesus to “come and see” where and how it is that God is calling (John 1:39 – the theme of this gathering).

Here is your opportunity to…

  • Experience support from others who are also trying to figure out where God is calling 
  • Meet seminary faculty and be part of three powerful presentations that will be similar to seminary classes 
  • Get to know and talk with some wonderful people who are now students at LTSP; find out what their “seminary adventures” have been like
  • Join in the worship and devotional life of the seminary
  • Share in great meals and stimulating conversation
  • Discover life in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia (where LTSP is located) and the thriving metropolis of Center City Philadelphia
  • Explore your future with others who are experiencing questions similar to your own
  • Know that the church supports you as you explore your sense of call
  • Find out about resources that make a seminary education affordable and hear about other helpful resources for your discernment journey

And…we will have fun!
