Today's Church and World: In Need of the Gospel of Sovereign Grace
The PRTS Spring 2022 Journal Is Here!
With the arrival of July the PRTS continues with its summer break. While we are not on our regular schedule, there is still plenty of activity in and about seminary.
This summer's plans include mission trips for two of our professors and for two of our students (Mexico and the Philippines). Another professor will be participating in the British Reformed Conference in Northern Ireland this month. Plus, there are regular preaching assignments on Sundays for professors and students. And there are times for rest and relaxation as vacation times are planned as well.
And summer is also the time when we do spring cleanup and building maintenance projects.
Continue to pray for us.
Two of our foreign students completed their programs in May and graduated on June 16 - Marcus Wee and Isaac Peters. We rejoice with them in the goodness of God, enabling them to prepare for the ministry in their churches back in Singapore and Australia. See our news section for more photos from that special night.
Prof. D. Kuiper will be teaching a special PRC history class starting this month and continuing in August. Visit the news section for more details on that.
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.

We are living in unusual times - even desperate times. The visible church is in steady decline, departing from God and His Word. And the world is wallowing in the abyss of sin, headed for an even greater abyss.
Both of which circumstances call for the gospel of God's sovereign grace in His Son, Jesus Christ. The church and the world desperately need the true gospel of God's Savior - revealed in Scripture and summarized in the great Christian and Reformed creeds.
Here at the PRT Seminary, we are committed to maintaining, defending, and promoting this biblical gospel of sovereign grace. And that means training men to bring that message to the church and to the world.
Pray for us as we continue this mission in faithfulness to the Lord. Stand with us and support us as we labor in this glorious cause - for the glory of God and for the gathering of 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 fields.
Won't you make this part of your prayers on our behalf?

Don't forget to pay attention to the PRTS blog! A variety of notices and posts on various subjects appear there, such the articles in the Fall 2021 PRT Journal (from a special Officebearers' Conference in Crete, IL) and other writings by our professors.
Also, last Fall, on October 28 and 29, 2021 the PRC Seminary held a special conference on preaching at Trinity PRC in Hudsonville, MI.
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.
