Testimony of John’s Experience with LAMP Seminary:

I am very thankful for LAMP Seminary. Quite frankly, I would not have been able to finish seminary if it was not for LAMP Seminary. I had begun seminary and then due to unforeseen financial difficulty resulting from damage to our house a few winters ago, all of our family savings and money set aside for seminary was gone.

I am a former public school teacher, so I had to go back into the classroom full time for two and a half years. I wanted to finish seminary but was not sure how I was going to be able to do it time wise and financially. It was then by God’s grace I discovered LAMP Seminary. My Pastor, John Rollins, was supportive in helping me finish by becoming a facilitator. The set up of classes allowed me to work full time and also take classes that were affordable.

I received a very good education through LAMP Seminary. Each class was challenging and thorough in preparing me and equipping me to be a Pastor, especially a reformed and Presbyterian pastor. I am thankful a seminary like LAMP Seminary is available to men like myself. Being a husband and father to five children I was able to earn a Master’s of Divinity, work full-time and finish without any debt. I am praying God would use me in the future to help other men fulfill their calling. Lord willing I will be able to help train men for the gospel ministry as a facilitator through LAMP Seminary and pass on the blessing I received. 

Currently LAMP has over 100 students and 49 Leaning Sites throughout the United States. Contact LAMP Seminary at (954) 816-5813 or bkelso@LAMPseminary.org for more information.
