Welcome to Reformed Theological Seminary

As you consider your call to seminary and the preparation you will need for a lifetime of ministry, remember this: Tomorrow's pastors need to know more not less. The challenges in the days ahead for the Gospel ministry will require pastors who have greater Biblical, theological and spiritual preparation than ever before. There is no substitute for a full M.Div. and original language study. We assure you of our utmost commitment to provide you the tools and preparation you need.

The study of the Word of God with a faculty who are both academicians and pastors and who are available to you both in and out of the classroom is an important aspect for your preparation as well. It is also important that your formation take place in an environment of community and with mentors and with others who too are also pursing personal Godliness and pastoral skills.

I hope that in the pages on our website you will glean the information you need about our programs. Our entire staff is happy to answer any questions you have.

But the best way to get to know RTS and what we may offer you is to visit a campus. Come see a campus, attend classes, and meet some of the students and spend time with faculty members. We have preview days at both the Orlando and Charlotte campuses twice a year and the Jackson campus and all of our extensions are happy to host you for campus visits at most anytime when classes are being held. We will plan a personal schedule of events for your visit. Just let us know when you wish to come.

May the Lord greatly bless you as you work to discern His call for ministry and the place He would have you prepare for a mind for truth, a heart for God and a lifetime of ministry.
