  •  God Calls You. The World Needs You. Trinity Prepares You.

    An inclusive seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), Trinity Lutheran Seminary at Capital University equips and forms faithful, wise and courageous leaders. Our students explore faith, grow in knowledge, and participate in practical ministry training.

    Our mission is to form leaders for Christ’s church at work in the world, and we invite you to join us.


    Message from the Dean


    I BELIEVE THE HEART OF THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION IS FORMING FAITHFUL, WISE AND COURAGEOUS LEADERS TO WITNESS TO THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST IN WORD AND ACTION.

    The church is called to be a servant-witness in the world. That requires leaders who are formed in faith, informed by knowledge, and experienced in practical application of their learning. As the world around us changes, church leaders need to be able to speak the Gospel in new ways to new audiences in new contexts.

    Whether you are a prospective student discerning a call to ministry or to further theological study, an alumnus or alumna eager to see your alma mater continue preparing strong leaders for the church’s work in the world, or a friend interested in supporting this mission with your financial gifts, we are grateful to be in relationship with you. In the words of hymn writer Richard Leach, ‘Come, join the dance of Trinity!’
