Why RTS Washington?

"I'm not trying to transfer information from one brain to another. I'm trying to pour character into the next generation. And you cannot do that at a distance."

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III
Chancellor & CEO, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology


 

BECAUSE STUDYING GOD'S WORD IN THIS LEARNING COMMUNITY IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE.

"When we ask students about their biggest influence at seminary, it’s their personal relationships with faculty and a close second is the close personal relationships they have with fellow students."

Dr. Scott Redd
President, Associate Professor of Old Testament


 

BECAUSE THE BENEFITS OF THEOLOGICAL TRAINING ARE FAR-REACHING.

"RTS allowed me to consolidate my Christian thinking in a way that I can better minister to my patients. I had always wanted to be a doctor. I still want to be a doctor. Going to seminary has made me a better doctor."

Allen H. Roberts II, MD, MDiv, FCCP, FACP
Professor of Clinical Medicine at Georgetown University, Chair of the Ethics Committee


 

BECAUSE THE WORDS OF SCRIPTURE ARE FORMING WHO WE ARE AS CHRISTIANS.

"RTS has informed what I believe, but it has also formed what I believe."

Jeff Toomer
Lead Pastor, Transit Church in Alexandria, Virginia


 

BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT THE WAY PEOPLE WORSHIP AND UNDERSTAND GOD.

"RTS has opened my eyes and opened my heart to know the many facets and the many different ways that we can understand God."

Katie Roelofs
Minister of Music and Worship, Washington D.C. Christian Reformed Church


 

BECAUSE ADDRESSING DIFFICULT CULTURAL CONCERNS REQUIRES THOUGHTFUL ENGAGEMENT.

"We live in an increasingly pluralistic society, and these courses help us to grapple with how to confess Biblical truth in this culture."

Jennifer A. Marshall
Vice President, Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity, and the Joseph C. and Elizabeth A. Anderlik Fellow at the Heritage Foundation


 

BECAUSE WE TREASURE OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH LOCAL CHURCHES.

"One of the things that makes or breaks a seminary is the quality of the churches around it. Praise God we have churches here who have a real interest in raising up pastors. Thoughtful Christians who are willing to invest in them."

Dr. Chad B. Van Dixhoorn
Chancellor's Professor of Historical Theology, Associate Professor of Church History


 

BECAUSE WE FIND JOY IN SEEING STUDENTS FALL IN LOVE WITH SCRIPTURE.

"The joy that I have in teaching is immense. I love teaching the Bible. I can't think of a better thing to do. We get paid to grade. We teach for free."

Dr. Peter Y. Lee
Associate Professor of Old Testament, Dean of Students


 

BECAUSE RTS IS FOR EVERYBODY.

"I would recommend RTS to anyone who's interested in the pastoral ministry (even if you don't identify yourself as Reformed) simply because so much of what you learn is robustly biblical."

Tom Breeden
Assistant Pastor, Grace Community Church in Charlottesville, VA
