It's time to rally our supporters for a chance to win $20,000 - 

This is an exciting time for LTS. As we prepare to join our Saskatoon Theological Union partners in one building, we need your support. We are grateful for the financial and prayer support of our many individual donors, who support financial student aid, the general fund, and capital projects. Such generosity is witness and inspiration to us all.

You have made it clear that theological education is vital and important in your communities. We recognize that these are challenging times in ministry and in the life of the church, yet LTS continues to need your support to contribute to the financial stability of the Seminary; it also means that LTS can continue to be a place where students are prepared for lay and ordained ministries in your congregations and communities. 

Your generosity means that students from across the Western provinces can be challenged by the Scriptures, prophetic witness, and experienced professors, and be prepared to serve in various ministry settings.

To help us and continue to offer our valuable services, CanadaHelps has launched the sixth annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge with an increased grand prize of $20,000. Every dollar donated to the seminary via from June 1st to 30th could help us win this year’s grand prize. 

Imagine the impact that $20,000 can make for the students at seminary! 

We thank you in advance for remembering the Seminary, its students, staff and faculty, in your prayers and thank you, again, for all the ways you show your support, in cards, letters, financial and prayer support!
