#LBCTogether Again in

Philadelphia Location of LBC

Philadelphia, PA

The Philadelphia location of Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School is located at Deliverance Evangelistic Church. Our spaces include five state-of-the-art classrooms, a library, a student lounge and academic offices. Students at our Philadelphia location have access to our academic mentoring services, a writing center, and disability services. There is also ample on-location parking available for students inside a gated parking lot with security. Additionally, our Philadelphia site is located in the heart of uptown Philadelphia.

LBC | Capital – Philadelphia, formerly known as Center for Urban Theological Studies, or CUTS for short, was founded in 1971 in part by Dr. Bill Krispin. In 2012, CUTS and LBC | Capital penned a memorandum of understanding and the Philadelphia location came under the college’s umbrella. While the name of the institution has changed, our dedication to developing and equipping passionate Christians to serve in the church and society has not. Today, we’re proud to continue to offer Christian higher education to students in the heart of uptown Philadelphia.
