Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School has been around since 1933, and we’ve changed a lot since then. We’re still a Bible college, but we’ve also expanded our program offerings to help fulfill our mission statement: preparing Christian students to serve Christ in the church and society – that means we offer more than just ministry degrees here!

5. Church Planting
The Church is a key part of God’s plan to bring about reconciliation. Why not invest your ministry in learning how to grow it? Church planting is much more than building yet another church – it’s about bringing to the gospel to every part of the earth. In this program, you’ll get equipped with the tools you need to be an effective minister in church settings and much more.
6. Strategic Leadership
More than anything, the church needs leaders who are focused less on themselves and more on Christ. Too often, the trappings of pop culture leadership – like acclaim, influence, recognition and even fame – are mistaken for power. Through Capital Seminary & Graduate School’s strategic leadership program, students learn the importance of true power through leading as Christ did, while simultaneously gaining practical leadership training that they can apply to their everyday lives through ministry.
