“One of the challenges for leaders in the ELCA is to be able to discuss the Lutheran tradition in relation to other Christian denominations; the ecumenical culture of United effectively facilitates that learning. At United, I was able to engage the ecumenical movement and still get the specifically Lutheran training I needed through the
Minnesota Consortium of
Theological Schools.”

– Aaron Crowell, MARL 2008

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Students

United welcomes students from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and is home to a growing number of ELCA students. ELCA graduates serve the church in a wide range of ministries throughout the country. Students will find a curriculum that satisfies the requirements of the denomination and offers these resources:
  • One member of the resident faculty and two members of the staff are Evangelical Lutheran Church in America:
  • ELCA clergy act as mentors to students in carefully chosen field placements;
  • History and polity courses are offered in partnership with Luther Seminary or as directed or as independent studies;
  • Ecumenical worship at United means that ELCA students, faculty, staff and clergy have the opportunity to lead worship in their own tradition as well as experience worship in a variety of styles and traditions; and
  • All students at United have access to the seminary’s generous program of financial aid.

I would like an alum or current ELCA student to contact me.
