Meet WayneMaster of Divinity Student, Distributed Learning

“I chose Trinity because of the amazing community I could sense during my short time as a visitor. It is obvious that God is doing beautiful things on this campus and that this community is feeding all of the students.”

Meet KateMaster of Divinity Student

“I chose Trinity Lutheran Seminary because the sense of community is truly unlike any other school I have ever visited. The warm feeling of welcome is compelling and it feels like home. I also really love the aspect of the 2+2… 2 years of classes, 2 years of internship. I think learning through actually doing is such an effective way to learn and I’m excited to have the extra year of experience through the internship.”
