How you learn will determine how you lead.

At RTS Jackson, the context of community fosters meditation on God's Word as you're surrounded by other believers. A faculty that cares for their students, weekly prayer groups and athletics, and campus housing together help us to live out our motto: a mind for truth, a heart for God.
