The PRTS is currently completing its summer break.
Classes are set to begin again on Tuesday, August 25, D.V. See the adopted schedule on this page.
For several years, the seminary faculty have permitted auditors to some classes. The presence and input of the auditors has been appreciated. With regret, because of COVID restrictions, the faculty is not inviting any auditors this semester.
Due to the current restrictions on indoor gatherings in the state of Michigan, the Theological School Committee has cancelled the 2020 seminary convocation (usually held in early September). Please continue to pray for the Lord’s blessing upon the work of our seminary, especially the labors of the professors and students.
The PRTS had no graduating students this year to be examined at the PRC Synod that met in June. This was noted by the Synod and the ongoing need for students was again brought to the attention of the churches. Continue to remember this need in prayer!

Last summer the PRTS underwent a major addition (new archives) and library renovation. This summer is quite a bit quieter though there are some regular maintenance jobs to be done..
We expect normal functions though many activities are still curtailed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The seminary is open daily, including the library and bookstore. Visitors are welcome, though you should follow the present standard guidelines.
If you have any special needs or desire to do a pick-up, call the seminary.
May the Lord grant all of us a safe and refreshing summer season!
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; and wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's hearts. Psalm 104:14,15.

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.
