Community Life

Daily prayer. Weekly Eucharist. Community meals.

There’s a lot to love about the North American Lutheran Seminary, but one of our favorite things is our community life. Between classes and lunch in the Commons Hall, our students are constantly rubbing shoulders with each other, faculty, and staff.

Located on the campus of Trinity School for Ministry

The North American Lutheran Seminary can be found in Ambridge, Pennsylvania on the campus of Trinity School for Ministry. Our partnership has been in place since 2014. We love our location at Trinity. Read on for more information about our campus!

Trinity’s first classes were held in the fall of 1976 with a small faculty and 17 students meeting in rented classrooms at a local college. Two years later, the seminary purchased an empty Presbyterian Church in Ambridge, Pennsylvania as well as the abandoned supermarket across the street. These buildings were then converted into a campus.

In 1990, Trinity purchased the land between the Church and the academic building and broke ground for a student commons building. Since then, Trinity has grown to over 300 students in residential and online programs and has expanded into nine buildings—including a state-of-the-art media center providing online and distance learning opportunities.
