Reformed Theological Seminary

Aubrey Coleman

As a senior in college, I was teaching and studying the Bible with students on a regular basis within my church home and campus ministry. During this time I realized two things: The first is that the Bible is the only source of wisdom that speaks into every situation with hope and healing. The second […]

Rev. Bret Hicks

I was already serving as a pastor of a small non-denominational congregation. I had done a fair amount of informal, advanced study on my own. I realized I needed to pursue formal, rigorous education to improve my ability to serve as pastor. I wanted to study the biblical languages and a wide array of other classes so I could improve my […]

Rev. Stuart Bryan

I wanted additional theological training to equip me to serve Christ and His Church more effectively and faithfully. I had obtained a B.A. in religion from a liberal Presbyterian college in Washington State and wanted to get better grounded in teaching that was faithful to the Word of God.   Prior to selecting RTS-Orlando, I had […]

Dr. Wally Hostetter

I was only one and one-half years old in the Lord. During that first year of faith, the elders of my church believed that God had a call on my life. They were willing to risk it all and pay for my seminary and a portion of our expenses so that I could move from being an […]

Rev. Luke Bert

I originally began my undergrad work a small Bible college in upstate New York. However, I had a crisis of faith in my second year and dropped out. It took three years, but God brought me back to his Church through small groups ministry. During my undergrad at Belhaven University, I found joy in the fact that I could […]

Rev. Earl Adams

I was called to the ministry by the Holy Spirit and I knew that I needed more training in order to preach God’s Word more faithfully according to the Scriptures. I was very excited to begin at RTS, but at the same time, there was fear and trepidation because of the high calling to which I felt led. I was 39 years old […]

Rev. Hansoo Jin

I felt called to pastoral ministry, and getting an MDiv seemed like a logical next step in discerning that calling. Starting this process was invigorating and left me dependent upon God. From the beginning, I realized that I had made the right decision to be at RTS; the timing and location of the classes worked […]

As I was graduating college, knowing pastoring was my desire, I knew I needed a good seminary to teach me, train me, and put me on a Godward and healthy direction. RTS Atlanta had just opened, which made RTS a natural and easy choice.   I knew from the first lecture that RTS was where God wanted me to be. Dr. Fesko was […]

Jeremy Morrison

Before enrolling at RTS, I was hurt and burned out from ministry and desired a graduate degree to make myself more marketable for employment in ministry positions. I felt that I needed more “on paper” legitimacy. When I sat with my first client in the Oviedo Counseling Clinic at RTS Orlando, I realized that thanks to my […]

I wanted to pursue a theological education rooted deeply in the Reformed tradition. I felt frustrated, because the seminaries that I was researching in this tradition seemed pretty narrow and exclusive in their outlook, proud of their distinctives at the expense of others. This gave the Reformed tradition an air of arrogance. The winsome nature of RTS ultimately convinced me that this was the seminary to attend. The first […]

Kristen Adams

Before attending RTS, I was passionate about helping people but unskilled and often ineffective. I realized that the high school girls that I worked with had bigger problems than I could handle. I wanted to be able to be the counselor instead of feeling helpless and referring them to a counselor. When I started seeing clients […]

Arthur Hsu

What motivated me to enroll at RTS was having a good Reformed theological education. I did consider going to seminary before, but none of the local seminaries I knew were from the Reformed tradition, and I felt a bit frustrated. In 2010, one of my friends told me about RTS Washington; I was very excited. At […]

Sam Webb

The Lord saved me while I was in college, and I began to have a growing desire for deeper theological reflection within my new-found faith. While in law school, I encountered ideologies that were distinctly opposed to a Christian worldview, and my desire to be better equipped in thinking like a Christian only grew. I […]

I wanted to learn more about this God I was finding as I studied the Bible more and more. I wanted to know him better by reading his book better. The desire to know God better made me more hungry for him. I was struck by the quality of the faculty and staff at RTS Atlanta. As I got […]
