The Lutheran Seminary Program in the Southwest (LSPS) is a program of Wartburg Theological Seminary and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. LSPS
is located in Austin, Texas and its core mission is to prepare leaders for Hispanic ministry contexts in the the Southwest and other cross-cultural ministries across the nation.

Theological education programs offered at LSPS have a strong focus on ministry as mission outreach in the multi-cultural contexts of the Southwest and other locations of transition. Students develop skills and sensitivity to serve in the midst of diversity, learn to adapt their ministry to the needs of the congregation, and they are prepared to address the changing cultural composition of the communities where they serve.
