A Summer Message of Rest & Renewal from President Pomerville

As we welcome new students to our Seminary community this fall, including those taking most of their classes remotely, we are excited to announce a new initiative to foster community and learning. The faculty of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary has developed a unique course that will bring together all students across various degree programs and learning modalities for an annual in-person experience.

Introducing the 2024 LPTS Mosaic Symposium! This new venture will take place on September 4-5, 2024, from breakfast through dinner each day, on the Seminary campus. The course, titled Mosaic Symposium: Faith in Action for Fall 2024, is a 1-credit, two-day intensive program designed to provide embodied, communal, and artistic experiences alongside multidisciplinary theological reflection.

Participants will enjoy shared meals, classroom sessions with multiple LPTS faculty, hands-on activities, mosaic making, Convocation, and a field trip to engage with local alumni who are actively putting their faith into action. Additionally, this year's symposium will coincide with the Presidential Inauguration on Friday, September 6, offering a rich thematic and temporal intersection.

We look forward to this new opportunity for community-building, fellowship, and learning, and we can't wait to see you there!

Key Dates to Remember:

  • Orientation for New Students: September 3
  • 2024 LPTS Mosaic Symposium: September 4-5
  • Fall Convocation of the 171st Academic Year: September 5
  • Presidential Inauguration: September 6
  • Fall Semester Begins: September 9

We look forward to the entire campus community coming together in this exciting kickoff to the new academic year! Watch for more details coming soon!


Our commitment as inspired by and rooted in the “whosoever” in John 3:16 is to attract and welcome a broad cross-section of people; to be inclusive of all and alienating to none.
