Lutheran Bishop Says Church Transforming School System

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, March 23 (LINA) – Lutheran Bishop, Dr. D. Jensen Seinkulo, says the Church's school system is undergoing transformation, to further improve the quality of education being provided at its academic institutions.

He named the conduct of periodic refresher workshops for teachers and training of teachers at various state-run teacher training institutes to improve their performance on the job.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Bishop Seinkulo told journalists in Gbarnga recently that the Lutheran Church in Liberia School System (LCLSS), is already on par with other religious learning institutions in the country.

He cited the Lutheran Training Institution (LTI), the Saint Peter's Lutheran High School and five other high schools in Monrovia, the Phebe Teaching Hospital and Gbarnga School of Theology, as being among schools that are providing quality education to future leaders.

The Lutheran Church in Liberia has existed for some 150 years, building the spiritual lives of Liberians and contributing to the educational and health needs of the people.

But, critics have said due to its age, the Lutheran Church has not adequately
competed with other churches in Liberia, who now run universities and other facilities like radio stations to educate and sensitize the Liberian people.
