Schools

Here are a few schools and seminaries we recommend for you and your family

Seminaries

LCMC pastors study and prepare for ministry at a variety of existing seminaries and ministry training schools. While there are no “LCMC seminaries”, the seminaries listed on this page have a working relationship with LCMC and are familiar with our certification requirements. Some of these schools offer an M.Div. degree consistent with those certification requirements; some offer shorter certificate programs; and some offer both. Some of these seminaries are externally accredited and some are not.

If you have questions about preparing for pastoral ministry in LCMC at these or other seminaries, please contact Perry Fruhling, the Coordinator for Pastoral Ministry, or Steve Turnbull, the LCMC Ministry Board seminary liaison.
