United Lutheran Seminary is supported through the generosity of faithful partners like you.

Why Give to United Lutheran Seminary?

United Lutheran Seminary provides a vital ministry for the sake of the church and the world – the equipping of trained leaders to serve the Gospel in the church and the world. We can provide this important theological education only through generous and faithful partners, like you, who support our mission through gifts and prayers.

United Lutheran Seminary is committed to offering students unprecedented levels of financial aid to make it possible for gifted leaders to follow their calling and reduce the debt levels graduates bring with them into ministry. Your generosity helps us meet that mission.

We thank you for your generosity in partnering with us in our mission of Unifying, Learning, and Serving, as we build future leaders for the church!

Tell Us Your Lenten Story!

The 40 days of Lent are meant to be a time of prayerful reflection and discernment. Often, we challenge ourselves to go without some creature comfort in order to focus more on our relationship with God and how our story intersects with Jesus’ story.

Starting on February 28, 2020, we will highlight six alumnus whose stories may have been misplaced by the passage of time. We will lift them up as examples to which we can all aspire as we seek to serve. Please share your Lenten story of sacrifice and service here. Your name and story will be published on this page.

Your Gift Has Immediate Impact

Learning takes shape in so many different forms at United Lutheran Seminary. Your gift to the United Lutheran Seminary Fund provides an immediate impact to our expansive, diverse, and ecumenical learning community. Your gift empowers seminary education for our future faith leaders.

Join us in their formation by investing in seminary education today.

Laura Dunklin, MDiv Class of 2019

"I feel a deep sense of gratitude for my seminary experience and the myriad ways it has equipped me for ministry. My time at ULS was marked by change and has prepared me to better serve a changing church. My experiences at the seminary, from classroom discussions and study trips to South Africa and the Holy Land, to contextual formation and relationships with colleagues and professors, have all provided me with diverse learning opportunities and challenged me to grow."

Bertha Cobia, MDiv Student

When I first came to ULS, I didn’t know what welcoming meant; I didn’t know what inclusive meant. I understand now that to be inclusive is not just showing a sexual orientation nor a gender identity, it’s welcoming to all. Now, I see welcoming and inclusive differently. As one song says, “There’s room at the cross for you,” there is room for you here at ULS, regardless of your race, age, gender, or sexual preference; it doesn’t matter. There is room for you here. As a black, older woman there was room for me. There was space.
