New York City Campus
New York, NY
Is RTS NYC Right for You?
New York City is a challenging context for ministry. There are many who come and go in ministry, but not nearly as many who remain, flourish, and build up others. Today more than ever, believers need more training for ministry, not less. If you desire to grow in your relationship with Christ, deepen your knowledge of his Word, gain skills to serve faithfully for a lifetime, or are an experienced leader eager to renew a foundation for your gifts, then RTS New York City may be the place for you. We offer the Master of Arts (Biblical Studies) degree, certificates, and continuous intentional community for spiritual formation.
RTS New York City began the MABS program at the invitation of Dr. Timothy Keller and Redeemer City to City. Our classes meet at the historic Central Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, just one block from Lexington and 63rd station, offering convenient access to Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.
We also have many generous scholarship and program partners to support you in seminary. The Admissions team can discuss which program is appropriate for you. It would be our honor to come alongside you as you discern God’s call in this season of your life.

Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology
