Come and See! Seminary invites you to Prospective Student Day on Thursday, October, 25, 2007 at 5:30 p.m.

On Thursday, October 25, 2007, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) will host a Prospective Student Day, which is open to anyone interested in degree, certificate, or lay theological education opportunities. To find out more or to register for the event, visit www.Ltsp.edu/admission/visit/visit.html or contact the LTSP Admissions Office at (215) 248-7302 or admissions@Ltsp.edu. LTSP is located at 7301 Germantown Avenue in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia.

* 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?

Come and see what LTSP has to offer! LTSP has education opportunities for a wide range of students – from lay leaders in congregations who are interested in learning more about the bible, the church's traditions and leadership to those who are being called to serve the church as a public minister of the gospel to those who want to pursue advanced degrees to enhance their current ministries and/or be prepared to teach in a college, university or seminary. Please join us for worship; refreshments; conversation with students, faculty and staff; and information about education opportunities, financial aid and admissions processes.

The seminary’s fully-accredited Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Religion programs prepare those with undergraduate degrees to serve as pastors and church leaders. Concentrations such as Black Church, El Instituto de TeologĂ­a y Pastoral, and Metropolitan/Urban offer opportunities for specialized study. LTSP also offers advanced degrees: Master of Sacred Theology, Doctor of Ministry, and Doctor of Philosophy. And for those who wish to explore faith questions or become better church leaders, the Urban Theological and Faith and Life Institutes offer a wide range of certificate and non-credit programs.

Can’t come to a Prospective Student Day? The LTSP Admissions Office can arrange a personal visit at your convenience. A personal visit gives you the chance to consider your call to leadership in the church by spending a day or two on campus with the seminary community. For more information, please contact the LTSP Admissions Office at (215) 248-7302 or admissions@Ltsp.edu.

LTSP reflects the diversity of God’s church with a student body that represents many different denominations, including Lutheran, Episcopalian, Methodist, Baptist, African Methodist Episcopal, and Church of God in Christ. Our day, evening and weekend classes offer a number of options to meet a wide variety of needs. The LTSP campus in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, has a park-like feel with trees and open space. The seminary is convenient to major highways and public transportation.
