Visit Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS from anywhere, everywhere on RTS Jackson Virtual Preview Day: May 27, 2020 1 PM CDT.
Even in the Coronavrus disruption, your friends at RTS are trying to make the most out of the situation for you. That’s one reason I’m so delighted that we are hosting a RTS Jackson Virtual Preview Day . I look forward to seeing and talking with you personally, and introducing you to our Deans and our amazing faculty. Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson is part of the largest confessional reformed seminary in the world, but with a close family feel, and we offer an unequalled array of resources to the students in our RTS family who are preparing for a lifetime of ministry, with a mind for truth and a heart for God. I can’t wait for you to learn a little more about how we serve our students in equipping them for ministry, and to familiarize you with the distinctives of RTS.
From the beginning, the RTS commitment to the inspiration, infallibility, inerrancy and authority of God’s word has been a hallmark of our institution and its public reputation. Because of this, RTS has earned the trust of people from a wide diversity of personal and denominational backgrounds. Along with this comes a commitment to winsome confessional reformed theology. The RTS ethos combines things that are unique in theological education in our time: a robust commitment to confessional Reformed theology with a winsome, happy, positive, posture. We love and care about truth, doctrine, theology and we also care about producing godly, loving, people who will serve the Lord and his church in such a way to commend the faith with their lips and lives, their conviction and character. We care about preparing graduates who will serve well in confessional reformed churches and denominations, and we care about equipping church workers who serve faithfully in the wider Bible-believing world. While some confessional Reformed institutions have an ambivalent or antagonistic attitude about the more broadly evangelical world, we esteem and want to serve Bible-believing Christians outside of confessional circles, and also want to provide needed theological ballast and exercise persuasive healthful influence.
At the very heart of fostering this ethos is our world class faculty: accomplished, gifted, caring professors, who are pastor-scholars devoted to equipping you for the work of ministry. RTS is blessed with the largest, most prolific, and widely known theological faculty in the confessional reformed world. Nothing is more essential to the purpose of a seminary theological education than the student’s relationship with the professors, and the professors’ love for the students, their character and godliness, passion for and involvement in the church, personal and public theological commitments, wide and deep learning and disciplinary expertise, pastoral experience and instincts, understanding of and devotion to pastoral preparation, The “secret sauce” of RTS is the people.
