Committing Gospel Truth to Faithful Men
Are You Receiving and Reading the PRTJ?

The PRTS is back in session! As of September 1, the first week of classes is completed, and we thank for the Lord for the good beginning we have had. It is always wonderful to have every one return and begin a new semester and school year. The first semester 2023-24 schedule and calendar have been approved and are posted here.

 The annual Convocation of the PRTS will be hosted by Hope PRC (GR) on Wednesday, September 6, at 7 p.m. All are invited and encouraged to join with faculty, students, and the Theological School Committee as we call on the Lord and seek His blessing on the upcoming school year. Prof. B. Huizinga will be speaking on "The Protestant Reformed Minister Today", and the PR String Orchestra will perform a special number.

We covet your prayers as we begin this new year. Join us in petitioning our heavenly Father for His grace and Spirit to equip and enable us in all our labors.


We have five students this year, with senior seminarian, Arend Haveman, doing his internship this summer and fall in Pittsburgh PRC under Rev. W. Bruinsma. Read the news section for information on the other four!


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 school 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

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 25,000 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.
