The community of South Sudanese refugees displaced by the civil war numbers in the millions. LCSS is currently expanding mission efforts in the refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. Two needs are met by the LCSS’s Trinity Lutheran Seminary and College: 1.) Leadership for growing and new congregations among the refugees; 2.) Hope for education, training and a better life for refugees in and around the camps close by Gambella, Ethiopia. The immediate project goals are the creating of effective learning environments for students so that they can graduate, serve God, their families and their fellow refugees. LCSS also seeks the goal of a successful community celebration surrounding the graduation, ordination and sending of the next cohort of pastors to the mission field. Currently more than 1,000 students are enrolled in both the college and seminary programs.
