Lifelong Learning

Christian Formation and Discipleship

Lifelong Learning at VTS provides continuous opportunities for theological education in the service of faithful leadership. It is for the committed and the curious, lay and clergy eager to claim and explore their Christian vocations in today’s world. We are in the business of activating baptism. We take your gifts and your questions seriously. We exist to inspire and inform your capacity to “go into the world and preach the Gospel!”
