Study to shew thyself approved unto God. II Tim. 2:15
May 2020 News
The PRTS is now in its final few weeks of the second semester, as we enter the month of May. Classes end on May 8 and exams on May 15.
The significant news continues to be the impact that the COVID-19 restrictions have had on our ability to maintain our normal training methods and schedule.
Due to the state of Michigan governor's orders, we have had to online classes, including exams now this month. Thankfully, this has gone as well as can be expected.
This also means that we are not able to have visitors at this present time. After the most recent extension of the "stay-at-home" orders (to May 15), we will reassess things.
Pray for faculty, students and staff as they strive to continue their labors in these difficult times and unusual circumstances.

It is the time of year when we usually have some special visitors at the seminary, and this Spring several were planned. And as we look ahead to the summer, the professors had several preaching and speaking trips planned as well.
But at this time these visits and trips are either cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hopeful that perhaps a few of the summer engagements can still be kept
And as we look ahead to this summer and the Fall semester, we continue to rest in our sovereign God, whose care for us is perfect and wise and who is also able to do above what we could ask or think.
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? ...He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? ...Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ...Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:31-39)

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.
