RTS Orlando is excited for 2014 to celebrate 25 years of being entrusted with the Gospel and training leaders for the 21st century global church. We've set a big goal for ourselves - to raise $250,000 for student scholarships. Please pray how God may have you help support these scholarships so that we can educate, equip, and encourage 50 future pastors, counselors, and leaders who will go out from this seminary and have a local impact and global reach for Christ!

For our 25th anniversary, we have picked the top Student Scholarships, Academic Initiatives, and Campus Projects as a list of 25 specific ways that you can join us in celebrating 25 years. If you have any questions on the various projects, please contact Executive Vice President Robert Emeott at 407.278.4550 or remeott@rts.edu.

To give towards a project, select “25th Anniversary Initiative” under “Areas to donate” on the Give Now page.  Please specify the project in the notes area of the donation form. Thank You!
