Deepening of Mind and Heart

"Being a student at RTS Memphis has been a great joy in my life as a Christian. My understanding of Jesus Christ has grown exponentially since enrolling and has lead to a greater life of worship of Him on a daily basis. I believe that one of the greatest needs in the world is the teaching of sound doctrine to every nation, especially mainstream Christian circles that have veered. I see the truth of the gospel more clearly each time I participate in class, and am able to return to the campus more equipped to share with students. I am so glad that I am a student here, and am looking forward to my continued education." -Pete Bredesen CO Staff

Learning and Growing in Community

"The opportunity to learn should never to be taken for granted, but the opportunity to learn deep things about God's word should be held to an even higher esteem. RTS has been a crucial tool in helping me to see God in the beauty of knowledge. This knowledge of God's word has led me to a deeper experience of God's presence. I am excited to learn from men and women who are passionate and serious about God's word. It has also been a pleasure to explore who God is alongside students who have made it their life's mission to know Him and make Him known."-- Grace Ufot, Campus Outreach Staff

Being Edified in Christ while Serving the Church

"My experience with RTS Memphis has been so encouraging and edifying. These classes have not only helped equip me for ministry but they have drawn me closer to Jesus in order to be a better husband and father. I'm deeply grateful for all the wisdom gained from the professors and fellow classmates. It is such a blessing to know that these classes directly affect so many in gospel ministry and ultimately in reaching the lost in our city and around the world!" -- Lee Taylor, Second Presbyterian Church Youth Staff

Doing Ministry and Seminary Together

"I am on staff full-time at my church and RTS Memphis has been a Godsend for my situation. The staff and the resources available have made the pursuit of my degree possible. The presentation of the material is live-giving and immediately applicable. I have left class several times and used what we've covered to minister to the people that God has placed in my life. I leave every class more amazed at what lies behind each word God has given us in His holy word." --Michael Williamson, Director of Operations & Outreach, Christ Fellowship, Horn Lake, MS

Equipped to Love and Serve

"I love seminary! In a culture where truth has become obscure and relative, RTS has helped me hold fast to the unchanging and timeless truth of God's word. Because RTS has helped me thoroughly know the Bible, I not only love God more (because I know Him better), but am also more equipped to teach God's word on the campus."-- Ali Barker, Campus Outreach Staff
