About Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

Reformed Theological Seminary Orlando serves the diverse and vibrant metropolitan area of central Florida. We are committed to the classroom and to preparing servants for gospel ministry and counselors for licensed, professional service that complements the ministry of local churches. Our MAC program prepares men and women for service as licensed counselors in a variety of settings where they can partner with and further resource these Christian congregations in providing theologically informed, biblically rooted soul care that makes wise use of all legitimate therapeutic resources. More information on the MAC program may be found here. We are presently pursuing CACREP accreditation (in addition to our current SACS and ATS accreditation) and hope to find someone who meets CACREP standards.

The RTS Orlando campus provides excellent opportunities to develop relationships with students and faculty and to immerse yourself in a local congregation (of which there are many options) and to connect with many national and international ministries. Our faculty are committed to biblical fidelity, confessional integrity, and academic excellence in all our programs, and our degree programs are intended to develop mature men and women for life and ministry here and around the globe.
