We are so excited about this new endeavor with the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. Students earn a B.A. and an M.Div in 5 years! Enrollment is open now so tell your juniors and seniors in high school about it.

This isn’t just a faster track towards ordination, it is a different approach to forming pastoral leaders.
