Theological Education for Emerging Ministry (TEEM) is a non-degreed program of theological education that prepares women and men for ministry in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Students entering the program must be selected and designated for the TEEM educational track by their synod bishop and candidacy committee.
The Theological Education for Emerging Ministries (TEEM) is an ELCA hybrid program. TEEM provides preparation through a combination of online and intensive coursework while candidates provide pastoral ministry in emerging ministry contexts throughout the country. Candidates for the TEEM program are nominated by their synod and approved by the ELCA. TEEM students will complete this certification program toward ordination in the ELCA.
Tuition (per course) $700
Administration fee $235
Room and Board fee $330
Total per course: $1,265
(typically students participate in 5 courses per year)
The TEEM program at LSPS is unique in the ELCA since it takes the Hispanic culture as the point of departure for intercultural dialogue. Through the various cross-cultural educational experiences that take place in and through the curriculum, LSPS TEEM students are prepared for ministry in the cross-cultural contexts that predominate the Southwest and all over our country.
Another unique feature of the LSPS TEEM program is that students do not need to relocate to Austin to complete their theological education. Course requirements are completed through intensive week or weekend gatherings that are held four times throughout the year.
