Being Challenged in Mind and Heart

"I first began classes with RTS Memphis to deepen my theological understanding of God's Word. However, I did not expect that each of my professors would not only challenge my mind but also engage my heart to worship the God of the Word who desires that we know Him and has made Himself accessible to us by mysteriously and sovereignly weaving His character into the Scriptures." --Ruthie Mengistu, Campus Outreach Memphis Staff

Being Equipped to Give My Life Away

"RTS Memphis has been such a blessing in my ministry endeavors and in my own walk with Christ. It is evident that the professors desire for the Gospel to penetrate the deepest corners of our hearts as well as reach the furthest corners of the earth! The classes equip me to love God, love my family and to give my life away in any context of ministry." -- Chase Presson, Campus Outreach 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

Growing in Christ as a College Minister

"God has used RTS Memphis as a catalyst for my growth as a child of God, husband, father and college minister. I've grown to know that seminary is not only about intellectual knowledge and theological breadth/depth. I'm reminded by all of my past RTS professors that every believer's theology should always lead to Spirit-lead practical application, in every area of our life for the glory of God!"-- Artez Henderson, Campus Outreach Memphis

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
