May 2023 PRTS News
Committing Gospel Truth to Faithful Men
Now Available: The Spring 2023 PRT Journal
As we enter the month of May, the final weeks of the second semester are upon us. May 12 is our final class day and May 15-19 is the week of final exams. We have again experienced the good hand and heart of the Lord on us, and we look to Him to supply our needs in these final days of the school term.
Continue to pray for us, that we would be faithful in our labors and would do so in conscious dependence on the strength of our God.
This month the PRTS will have the church history students (juniors) from Covenant Christian High School as our special guests on May 12. They will join us for lunch and have four presentations on various aspects of the seminary and PRC history. Their annual visit is always a highlight for us.
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.
Won't you 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.
The Spring 2023 issue of the PR Theological Journal is now available in print and digital editions. Use the link here to download your choice of editions (pdf and epub).
The Spring issue features articles on a distinctive feature of PRC teaching on the covenant of grace, on the image of God in man from a conference in Mexico, on R.L. Dabney's "proposals of mercy," and the first part of a history of Classis West of the PRC - and, of course, several significant book reviews.

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.
Explore our extensive online library catalog, which is ever growing. The seminary library has over 24,000 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.
