Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary is called by God through the church to educate men and women to participate in the redemptive ministry of Jesus Christ in the world.

The Seminary is a community that affirms and trusts the ever-faithful presence and activity of the triune God. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we confess the Scriptures to be the unique and authoritative witness to God's redemptive love for the world.

We are committed to an ecumenical vision of the Body of Christ. We recognize the wholeness of the church's mission, respect the cross-cultural character of Christian ministry in the world and support continuing efforts at interfaith dialogue and practice.

The Seminary's student body and faculty represent 15 different faith traditions, predominantly from Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist denominations.

Service Opportunities:
Field Education allows you to immerse yourself in situations that will stretch, challenge, and expand your understanding of ministry. You will develop new skills, integrate classroom learnings with hands-on ministry, and reflect theologically on your experiences. MDiv students are required to do 4 semesters of field education, but many students engage in different experiences for three academic years and each summer.
Athletics:
Louisville Seminary students participate in intramural athletics, including basketball and flag football, with our neighboring seminary, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Other Activities:
Worship is central to community life at the Seminary. The community gathers in Caldwell Chapel, Wednesday through Friday, to encounter God, individually and corporately, through Word and Sacrament. On special days during the liturgical year, additional services of worship, like the Service of Lessons and Carols, includes spouses, children, and the larger community. Regular participation in worship is central to the spiritual formation of students.
