Urgent Need for PRC Pastors and Missionaries
Make the PRTS Journal Part of Your Reading!
The PRTS is already a couple of weeks into the first semester of the 2021-22 school year. We covet your prayers as we begin a new season of instruction and study.
September includes a Labor Day holiday break (Sept.6) and a special day for faculty and students to attend on a conference of sanctification in Crete PRC, IL (Sept.28). The class schedule and semester calendar are posted on this page.
Another special date in September is the 15th, when Rev. C. Griess will be installed as professor of NT Studies and Practical Theology (Southwest PRC, Wyoming, MI, 7 p.m.). This will also be the annual seminary convocation evening. All in the area are welcome to attend.
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 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.
The PRC Synod of 2021 again emphasized this need and urged the churches to look in her midst for suitable candidates for this special calling.
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 Spring 2021 Issue of the PRT Journal is currently at the printer and should be available later this month. But the digital edition (pdf) is available now (ePub edition will come shortly)! Visit the link provided here to start reading your issue today!
In the newest issue you will find profitable articles on Neo-Kuyperianism and Reformed higher education, church holidays, and the triune covenant God, plus plenty of good book reviews!
If you would like to read the previous issue (Fall 2020), visit the Journal archive page.
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.
