A major in theology prepares students to make thoughtful and skillful contributions to the cause of Christ within and beyond the local Church. Courses in Biblical studies, theology and philosophy provide depth and background while those in Christian life and ministry prepare students for spiritual leadership.

“The greatest adventure I could've asked for”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the theology program at LCC and was consistently interested in all that I studied. After graduation, I accepted an invitation to move to Vilnius and help start a church there. It has been the greatest adventure I could’ve asked for; truly a dream job.”
