The Need for PRC Pastors and Missionaries
Fall 2020 Journal Now Available! Vol.54 #1
The PRTS is now over two-thirds of the way though the second semester and things continue to go well, for which we praise our covenant Father.
The first week of April (5-9) is our annual Spring Break period. We always look forward to this break - and hope for good West Michigan weather!
The second round of practice preaching is taking place the last week of March and the second week of April.
The seminary is open daily (8-5), including the library and bookstore. Visitors are welcome, though you should follow the present guidelines during the pandemic.

The PRC is in deep need of ministers of the Word, both for the established congregations and for the mission field. Over the last few years this need has been announced to the churches and the need continues to grow.
This notice was placed recently in some PRC bulletins: For several years our synods have asked the congregations to remember the need for young men to pursue the calling to serve as ministers of the gospel. Consistories and parents are urged to encourage young men in whom they see the beginning of the gifts necessary for the ministry. The greatness of the message of the gospel and the greatness of the need for that gospel to be proclaimed makes the need urgent. Also, there is an urgent need for young men because of the number of vacant congregations and the number of current ministers retiring because of increasing weariness of age. Cease not to ask the King of the church to provide.
Prof. H. Hanko gave a convocation speech years ago titled "A Prayer for Laborers in God's Harvest." You are encouraged to read this message at the link provided here.
More recently (2018) Prof. R. Dykstra wrote an article about being called to the ministry. Read that at this link.
Our Fall 2020 Issue of the PRT Journal is now available - in print and in digital formats!
In it you will find profitable articles on Amyraut and hypothetical universalism, the keeping of Sunday as a day of rest and worship, Southern Presbyterian pastoral concerns, John Owen and the covenant of grace, plus plenty of good book reviews!
For an overview of the issue by the editor, visit the seminary blog. And watch for future posts on this issue soon!
And, work has begun on collecting articles and book reviews for our Spring 2021 issue.
If you are interested in being added to our mailing list to receive the PRTJ free, kindly call or email the seminary.
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.
