Lancaster Seminary’s Alumni

Our alumni organization creates a space in which you can interact within a community of people who shared a unique experience, whether as a master’s degree student or as a student in our doctoral program, all are welcome!

Our Alumni Council is taking a leadership role in developing, planning, and promoting quality programs and events designed to keep you connected to our LTS community.

Our Alumni Council has 15 seats and we would love to have individuals from as many classes participate. In addition to the council, we also have 4 subcommittees. If you wish to become involved, please contact the Advancement Office at 717-290-8738.
