... a diverse group of dedicated scholars and teachers representing different faith traditions, sharing a commitment to bring faith and intellect to bear in educating leaders for faith communities and the wider world ...
Our President, Rev. Dr. Carol Lytch, put it best: "The faculty at Lancaster Seminary are not just internationally recognized scholars in their disciplines. They are teachers who are answering their calling to engage in a teaching and learning enterprise that opens students to new ways of believing, serving, and stewarding their gifts and talents. They have crafted a classic and contemporary curriculum of biblical studies, theology, church history, worship and preaching, and the arts of ministry that aims to mature the whole person for their next place of service. They challenge students to achieve some mastery of religious knowledge and practice so that they become seekers and witnesses to truth for the rest of their lives."
Our resident professors have full-time appointments with primary responsibility for the structure, instruction, and implementation of our educational programs.
Our part-time adjunct faculty members have appointments in other educational institutions, ministries, or service agencies, and bring their training and expertise to courses here at Lancaster Sseminary.
Respected pastoral leaders in the region are invited to serve as ministerial guides for our Master of Divinity students. These ministerial guides, along with faculty members, assist students in the process of discerning and shaping lives of faith, ministry, and leadership through programs of vocational and spiritual formation.
