What age should my child become a member of the church?
Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Do you acknowledge yourself to be a sinner in the sight of God? Do you endeavor to live as becomes a follower of the Lord? These are things that we consider when questioning the age children should become members of the church. Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III, Chancellor and CEO, gives us an insightful answer and challenges us to focus on the understanding of biblical principles rather than a specific age requirement for membership.

Become a Partner with RTS

This year we celebrate 50 years of the Lord’s blessing upon Reformed Theological Seminary, even as we look forward in faith and hope to what is to come. The yearly cost of tuition for a full-time student is approximately $12,500 (though the actual cost to RTS is higher). More than 70% of current students need some level of financial assistance to alleviate this cost. Our students work hard, and not just in their studies. They often hold two or even three jobs in order to make ends meet. They are already sacrificing in order to prepare for ministry. We want to help them. Would you consider helping our future church leaders come to learn and grow at RTS by giving to the general scholarship fund?

Visit a Campus Today

The best way to get to know RTS and what we may offer you is to visit a campus. Come see a campus, attend classes, and meet some of the students and spend time with faculty members. We have preview days at both the Orlando and Charlotte campuses twice a year and the Jackson campus and all of our extensions are happy to host you for campus visits at most anytime when classes are being held. We will plan a personal schedule of events for your visit. Just let us know when you wish to come.
