“This place has quickly become a home to me”

"When you are going through the very taxing initial phases of transition, look for the adventure in the difficulty, relax, and be willing to ask for help. The LCC community will assist you, respect you and trust you. This is good, but it necessitates that honest reaching out on your part. While I am still relatively new to LCC, this place has quickly become a home to me. I hope you will get to experience this home as well!"

Lithuania is a member of the EU and Schengen Agreement, which means you will be able to explore neighboring countries and Central Europe without any borders.

Klaipėda is the third largest city in Lithuania, located on the Baltic Sea. It is a thriving cultural and business hub of the region that turns into a resort for the summer season. 

With an increasing spread of English language, you will have no difficulties finding your way around town and enjoying local culture. 

Campus

We are the only University in Eastern Europe that has a full campus - student residence halls, gym, sports center, cafeteria, modern offices and classrooms designed to facilitate small study groups.

The campus is conveniently located 1 mile from both Old Town Center and a Regional Park by the Baltic Sea.

“Incredible for our family”

"Moving to Lithuania and working at LCC has been an incredible experience for our family.

We’ve been privileged to work with staff and students from all over the world and challenged to grow through confronting our own cultural assumptions and perspectives.

While raising a child away from family and in a new culture has challenges, it’s also a joy to have your child experience life beyond the US and offers a unique level of family bonding that would not occur in your normal comfort zone."

“Supportive, safe, important”

"We moved here in 2015, when our kids were 10, 8, 7, and 4. Here in Klaipėda, the kids benefit from a supportive environment, safe streets, and an opportunity to meet people from many different nations. They see our mission and understand its importance. 


Some days are hard, but we are raising global Christians - they know from first-hand experience what God is doing in the world - and we wouldn’t trade that for anything."
