Welcome to Lincoln Christian Seminary. I am pleased that you have found our University, and hope that you will spend some time exploring what the Seminary has to offer.

Lincoln Christian Seminary is a graduate theological school focused on professional leadership ministry within its understanding of the "priesthood of all believers." We are committed to developing servant leaders who will carry out Christ's Great Commission in the world.

We offer a wide variety of degree programs in order to provide distinctive leadership for the many facets of ministry necessary for advancing the Kingdom. We value scholarship in the service of the Church, working to equip our students for the mission that God has placed in their path.

The Seminary is a community, not because we live in the same place, but because we serve the same Master. Whether you choose to relocate to Lincoln or pursue your degree from a distance, you will find a caring group of students and faculty who seek excellence in academics and depth in spiritual formation.

On behalf of the faculty, I offer the sincere desire that you will consider the place that Lincoln Christian Seminary may have in your future. We will be happy to welcome you!
