In this second month of 2024, we are several weeks into the new semester, and God continues to bless us and provide us with all that we need to carry on our mission here at PRTS.
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. ~ Psalm 34:8
Regular classes, daily devotions, weekly chapels, and special visitors mark the February calendar (see our news page for more details).
The first practice preachings sessions will be held the end of this month. We are thankful for health and strength as we continue our labors.
For your interest and information, the second semester 2023-24 schedule and calendar have been posted here.
The seminary is open daily (M-F, 8-5), including the library and bookstore. Staff is available by phone or email if you have any special needs.

The Protestant Reformed Theological seminary exists to pass on the truth of God's Word to the next generation of gospel ministers, so that they may in turn pass that truth on to the generations following.
As Paul instructed Timothy, so does the PRTS faculty instruct the spiritual sons of the church:
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2
We covet your prayers, now also in this new year, that we may be faithful to this solemn charge from our God.
The PRC is also in deep need of ministers of the Word, both for the established congregations and for the mission fields.
We beseech you to make this part of your prayers on our behalf. And encourage your sons and grandsons to consider seriously God's call to the ministry of His Word.
"Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest." Luke 10:2
Did you know that the PRTS has many videos available for your instruction and edification? You may find these on the seminary's YouTube channel, where you will find classes and speeches by the PRTS professors.

The Fall 2023 issue of the PR Theological Journal is currently available! The digital editions (pdf and epub) are posted and the print editions have been mailed out. If you wish to be added to our mailing list, contact the office, or stop by the seminary to pick up a copy.
This Fall issue focuses on three controversies the Reformed have with the Remonstrants (Arminians), and includes a reprint of a classic Reformation-themed article by Prof. H. Hanko from an early journal. Plus, there is a fine variety of book reviews again.
Remember to check out and subscribe to the PRTS blog! A variety of notices and posts on various subjects appear there, such as the articles from the PRTS Journal and other writings and speeches of our professors and pastors.
Introducing the PRC Seminary
Our Seminary is dedicated to preserve and develop the truth of the Word of God and to provide an education in this truth in all branches of theology. More specifically, the seminary maintains this truth as it has been historically maintained since the time of the great Protestant Reformation, especially the Reformation of John Calvin. These principles and truths of the Calvin Reformation form the heart of all the instruction offered.
ABOUT the PRC and HER SEMINARY
The Protestant Reformed Churches have from the very beginning recognized the need for a theological school in which men could be prepared for the ministry of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The establishment of a separate seminary was closely connected with the reasons for the organization of the Protestant Reformed Churches.
