To the LTSP community:
Given our deep, shared commitment to the ongoing vital mission of the church, the officers of Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg (LTSG) and The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) met on Friday, December 20, and have agreed to explore heightened collaboration between our two institutions.
We recognize the significant challenges facing theological education today, and see in them opportunities for rich partnerships grounded in the history and traditions of our two institutions. We want to serve the church by providing innovative leaders who will carry us into a bold future; we want to see our two institutions thrive far into the future.
The officers came to consensus that there are multiple options for a possible shared future which will be considered through a series of meetings in the very near future. These discussions will be expanded to include the full boards, faculties, and administrations of both seminaries.
