The Global Seminary Initiative (GSI) is a program that provides Lutheran theological education in three primary ways:
1) Bringing the best students worldwide to LCMS seminaries to study at the graduate level so that they can return to their home countries and provide advanced theological leadership.
2) Support for local regional seminaries -- both infra-structure and scholarships for students to attend regional seminaries.
3) Continuing education -- seminars, conferences, and visits by qualified LCMS pastors and professors to teach in the local context.
The world has changed from the time of sending out missionaries to places where people had never heard the Gospel. In most parts of world today, we have partner churches who firmly believe that one of the best qualities of the LCMS is our theological education. It is our niche, one of our core competencies, and we are well-positioned to make the most of it by assisting these partner churches.
