Alumni Relations

2 People in Robes. 12x450Our Alumni are the heart and soul of the seminary and play a role as our greatest advocates. We are always looking to hear and share the news of all your successes and know that we love each and every one of you.

Our graduates are church leaders in local Canadian communities and in mission contexts around the globe. Our alumni/ae include,

  • Current bishops of the four Western Synods
  • Nine of the 14 Synodical and National Bishops in the 23-year history of the ELCIC
  • The former General Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF)
  • The former Director General of the Chaplaincy Division of Correctional Service Canada
  • University, college, and seminary presidents and professors
  • Numerous missionaries to developing countries
  • Chaplains in military, care home, hospital, and campus settings

Almost 800 of our alumni/ae have served as pastors in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and in the predecessor bodies of these churches. This level of excellence is humbling, and we are grateful for God’s love and guidance along the journey.

All graduates and former students of LTS are, by default, members of the Alumni/ae Association. The current President is Rev. Harley Johnson '81.

An annual reunion is held each May during the Study Conference. Alumni/ae are also encouraged to participate in the Hordern Classic golf tournament.
