Visit the PRTS' Blog for Journal Items and More!
The PRTS has finished its summer break and first semester classes have begun!
Orientation for the freshmen was held on Monday August 24, and classes began on Tuesday, August 25. See the adopted schedule on this page.
For several years, the seminary faculty have permitted auditors to some classes. The presence and input of the auditors has been appreciated. With regret, because of COVID restrictions, the faculty is not inviting any auditors this semester.
Due to the current restrictions on indoor gatherings in the state of Michigan, the Theological School Committee has cancelled the 2020 seminary convocation (usually held in early September). Please continue to pray for the Lord’s blessing upon the work of our seminary, especially the labors of the professors and students.

The Theological School Committee, with the advice and desire of the faculty, has decided to hold classes onsite and in person this semester.
We are grateful to be able to do this as "face-to-face" teaching and learning is far to be preferred to online instruction.
With our small numbers and proper safety protocols, we are able to carry on in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The PRTS had no graduating students this year. This was noted by the PRC Synod that met in June and the ongoing need for students was again brought to the attention of the churches. Continue to remember this need in prayer!
The seminary is open daily (8-5), including the library and bookstore. Visitors are welcome, though you should follow the present standard guidelines.
If you have any special needs or desire to do a pick-up, call the seminary.
Are you following and reading the PRTS Blog?
On it you will find short references and links to sound Reformed articles, speeches, and sermons by the faculty of the PRTS, as well as others.
Some of these references are to the material found in the PRTS Journal, including the latest one, the Spring issue.
In this issue are good articles on nineteenth-century Southern Presbyterians, Calvin's view of the reward of grace, a plea for biblical languages, and two book review articles besides other book reviews.
Check it out on the seminary's journal page!

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.
