Reformed Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the launch of a new eCommerce store, MIND + HEART. The online store will open on October 31, 2019, Reformation Day.
RTS apparel and products, such as shirts, accessories, and mugs, will be available at MIND + HEART. In addition to seminary-related products, the store will feature limited edition custom art prints with quotes from Christian leaders and educators and passages from Scripture.
Phillip Holmes, Vice President of Institutional Communications, shared his enthusiasm for the new project: “I’m thrilled to announce the launch of MIND + HEART. For some time, we’ve wanted to make quality RTS merchandise and apparel available to our 5,000-plus graduates and countless partners across the country who are not near one of our eight campuses.
“Due to the student debt crisis, many students are bringing historically high undergraduate debt to seminary with them, and go further into debt while in seminary,” Mr. Holmes remarked, elaborating on the purpose of MIND + HEART. “Every dollar spent at MIND + HEART will go towards fueling the purpose of Reformed Theological Seminary: to serve the church in all branches of evangelical Christianity by preparing pastors, missionaries, educators, counselors, and others for ministry.”
Starting October 31, RTS t-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and art prints will be available. After the initial launch, the store will continue to release new products and resources for its customers and supporters.
Dr. J. Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO, also shared his thoughts on the store. “RTS is a family, our students, graduates, faculty, staff, partners, and friends. For the last 30-plus years that I’ve been a part of this community, I’ve noticed that our people like to identify with the seminary in visible ways. For instance, when I travel, I’m often asked by alumni and supporters ‘Can I get one of those RTS lapel pins, or mugs, or ties, or cufflinks, or ballpoint pens?’ This is one reason that I’m so thankful that Phillip Holmes has revived and launched the MIND + HEART online store.”
Until November 4, MIND + HEART will have a grand opening sale, with a 20% discount on all merchandise. To receive the coupon code, visit rts.edu/mindandheart. Email subscribers will also be the first to know about promotions, sales, and new items.
“I’ve already signed up for emails myself and have my eye on several items,” Dr. Duncan continued. “We hope you enjoy your experience in the official online store of RTS, and that the purchases you make remind you of us, and express your connection with the people, purpose, and mission of this remarkable institution.”
