Academy of Faith & Leadership

The Academy of Faith and Leadership at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (LTSS) exists to help equip both lay and clergy alike for their lifelong work as ministers of the gospel. 

Founded on the premise that all Christians are called to the vocation of ministry in the world, the Academy of Faith and Leadership seeks to provide resources that will empower and equip women and men to be faithful disciples of Christ both in the church and in the world.  As the seminary's primary avenue for offering continuing education and lifelong learning, the Academy of Faith and Leadership provides a variety of opportunities and resources including:

  • Workshops & seminars for lay and clergy audiences
  • Lectures
  • Resources for congregations like the "What Does This Mean" video series (check it out here)
  • Study Leave for Church Leaders 
  • Free audio downloads of past lectures and events
  • Certificate Programs (launching in 2015)
