An institution of the Evangelical Lutheran Church
in America, Trinity Lutheran Seminary at Capital
University is committed to expanding its students'
discernment of faith, responsibility to one another
and purposeful impact. That's forming leaders for
Christ's church at work in the world.
We Share a Common Mission and HistoryIn 1830, the
church founded the Evangelical
Lutheran Theological Seminary
in Ohio to educate pastors in the
region, which later resulted in the
charter of Capital University in
1850. Despite numerous changes
over the years, the relationship
between the church and the
university remained strong.
On January 1, 2018, the historic
bonds between Capital and
Trinity were restored, promising
a stronger future for both
institutions. Trinity Lutheran
Seminary at Capital University
is sustainably empowered to
deliver an innovative, integrative
and invigorating theological
education through one of Ohio’s
top comprehensive, private
universities, and to impact the
world as one of the strongest
seminaries of the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in America.
