There are no “LCMC seminaries". LCMC pastors study and prepare for ministry at a variety of existing seminaries and ministry training schools. The seminaries listed on this page have a working relationship with LCMC and are familiar with our certification requirements. 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 Stephen Lien, the Coordinator for Pastoral Ministry, or Steve Turnbull, the LCMC Ministry Board seminary liaison.
