Liangyou Theological Seminary
Bible Seminaries in China are not well established and in need of improvement and upgrading. Opportunities for Bible training are scarce. Believers may become pastoral leaders within a short period of conversion if they have literacy skills. Therefore they are greatly in need of suitable theological training. In view of this great need, a Bible training broadcast series was released in 1982 and it later became the very popular Liangyou Theological Seminary, LTS (Website: lts38.net).
Throughout the years, Liangyou Theological Seminary is committed to meeting the needs of the churches in Mainland China, earnestly developing programs through multimedia, teaching biblical truths, building up moral characters and the faithfulness of missionary workers and volunteers, raising up healthy churches, glorifying our Lord Jesus Christ.
Courses of Liangyou Theological Seminary are designed towards indigenization and contextualization. Currently there is a “Navigation Program” (the original “Foundation Program”) and a new “Bachelor of Ministry” course is introduced in 2021. The new bachelor program aims at equipping believers serving in churches.
Stage One “Diploma Program” offers 28 compulsory courses and 8 electives; Stage Two “Higher Diploma Program” expands on the initial contents and requires students to complete lesson reports on 24 courses, exams on 12, 8 book reviews and either sit a graduation exam or submit a thesis.
Lecturers of Liangyou Theological Seminary correspond with students to gain a fuller understanding of their lives and learning needs, they also hold training camps in the mainland, as well as visiting them and their churches. It is our hope that each student can thrive in the Lord.
