Office of Development

Trinity Lutheran Seminary forms leaders for Christ’s church at work in the world.

With this mission as our focus, Trinity’s development team advocates for the most important people on the Trinity campus: students. Through our long-standing focus on the preparation of the whole person for leadership in the church and world, Trinity students are in the process of becoming authentic servant leaders who are healthy, vibrant, maturing, transformative, resilient and evangelical.

Our work with individuals, congregations and other organizations is inspired by the vision to which we hold ourselves accountable. This vision is focused on five pillars of excellence.
  • Excellence in Formation
  • Excellence in Enrollment
  • Excellence in Ecumenism
  • Excellence in Impact in the World
  • Excellence in Sustainability
We invite you to consider a gift in support of the mission of Trinity Lutheran Seminary.
  • Unrestricted gifts
  • These are critically important to Trinity’s health and allow us to fulfill our mission, year after year. Your unrestricted gifts provide support for our world-class faculty, programs, and infrastructure.
  • Planned gifts
    These provide long-term support for Trinity’s mission. We invite you to include Trinity in your estate plans. If you have an interest in supporting Trinity in this way, please feel free to contact either of us.
  • Scholarships and Adopt-a-Seminarian Grants
    These provide much needed support for Trinity’s students in all degree programs. You may endow scholarships in the name of a loved one or friend. Adopt-a-Seminarian grants provide annual financial support to our students.
