In the 21st century, there is a shift in the religious landscape. It is more diverse and complex than we have ever experienced. Pastors, lay leaders, and professors need a seminary that provides opportunities for learning that are ecumenical, multicultural, and connect with public policy. In order for PLTS to achieve academic goals above and beyond our annual operating budget, it will take major gifts of over $10,000. It is our goal to find donors who will give generously to enhance our curriculum so that our seminary can continue to be a key player in the world of theological education in the West. Key uses of major gifts are for Scholarships and Endowments.
