A New Year: the Same God and the Same Task
New PRTS Journal, and Blog Posts!
The PRTS has begun the new year with the 2022 special Interim course, which runs from Jan.3-11. Prof. R. Dykstra is teaching his course on the history and principles of Christian education.
The Lord willing, the second semester of regular classes will begin on Tuesday, Jan.18. That schedule has been posted here.
We covet your prayers as we carry on in the task of training men for the gospel ministry in the PRC, in our sister churches, and beyond.
The professors and the two licensed students stayed busy with preaching assignments during the two-week holiday break. Sem. M.Wee completed his internship in Faith PRC (Jenison, MI) on Jan.1.
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.

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. Psalm 90:1,2,17
The PRTS has entered a new year, and with that all the uncertainties that characterize our lives in this world, especially our current one.
And yet, we have every confidence as we move forward, for our God is unchanging and faithful to His Word and promises. He is with us and goes before us. And He is at work in us, carrying out His sovereign will in the salvation of His church.
And so our task remains the same - to train men for the ministry of the Word, so that through them God may call out His own chosen people in this world and join them to Christ and 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 field.
Won't you make this part of your prayers on our behalf?

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.
