May 2022 PRTS News
Today's Church and World: In Need of the Gospel of Sovereign Grace
Look for the New PRTS Spring 2022 Journal - and Read the Fall 2021 Issue!

With the arrival of May the PRTS enters the final weeks of the second semester. Our final day of classes is May 6, and then the week of exams, ending May 13, after which we will enjoy our end-of-year seminary picnic. 


God has graciously sustained us throughout this year, and we look to Him for His grace as we finish our work for this semester.

There will be plenty of activity yet for faculty, students, and staff in the months ahead - speaking engagements, mission trips, internships, fall course preparation, writing projects, etc.

Continue to pray for us.


Two of our foreign students are completing their programs this month and will be graduating in June - Marcus Wee and Isaac Peters. We rejoice with them in the goodness of God, enabling them to prepare for the ministry in their churches back in Singapore and Australia.


Arend Haveman (2nd year) has been licensed to speak in the PRC as of this month. We rejoice in the brother's progress and pray for him as he soon begins his assignments in the churches.



Prof. D. Kuiper will be teaching a special PRC history class in July and August. Visit the news section for more details on that.


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.

We are living in unusual times - even desperate times. The visible church is in steady decline, departing from God and His Word. And the world is wallowing in the abyss of sin, headed for an even greater abyss.

Both of which circumstances call for the gospel of God's sovereign grace in His Son, Jesus Christ. The church and the world desperately need the true gospel of God's Savior - revealed in Scripture and summarized in the great Christian and Reformed creeds!

Here at the PRT Seminary, we are committed to maintaining, defending, and promoting this biblical gospel of sovereign grace. And that means training men to bring that message to the church and to the world.

Pray for us as we continue this mission in faithfulness to the Lord. Stand with us and support us as we labor in this glorious cause - for the glory of God and for the gathering of His church!


We are conscious of this great need throughout the world for faithful gospel preachers and pastors. The PRC is also in deep need of ministers of the Word, both for the established congregations and for the mission fields.


Won't you make this part of your prayers on our behalf?

Also, last Fall, on October 28 and 29, 2021 the PRC Seminary held a special conference on preaching at Trinity PRC in Hudsonville, MI.

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.


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.


If your desire is to preach and teach the biblical gospel and to lead and pastor God's people according to His Word, consider being trained in our theological seminary.


Explore our extensive online library catalog, which is ever growing. The seminary library has over 22,000 resources, with a focus on historic Reformed theology, Reformation (and Dutch) church history, biblical studies, and practical theology. But all Christian traditions are represented, as well as teachings outside of historic Christianity.

Listen to Sermons, conference lectures, and speeches given by our professors and graduate ministers.
