Generosity Transforms Lives

Support future church leaders

Giving to Luther Seminary has an incredible impact. Your financial gifts help support students as they pursue their next step in ministry, allow us to hire educators that are the best in their fields, and most importantly, share God's love in the world.

Eighty-six percent of students receive merit-based scholarships and financial aid in order to attend Luther Seminary. Many of these students would not be able to afford seminary on their own. Your generosity allows future church leaders to follow their call into ministry and proclaim the Gospel.

Dr. Michael Chan, '09, likens investing in theological education to planting a garden: "It's an extremely long-term investment ... You may not even in your lifetime see the forest that will eventually grow there, but you can always go out to the seedbed and see those sprouts coming up, and apply water as needed."

Watch a video featuring Chan's thoughts on Luther Seminary as a professor who returned to his alma mater's classrooms to instill in his students a love of Scripture in all its richness and diversity.
