Notices - March 2018
The seminary has now completed eight weeks of the second semester. Mid-term exams have been given. The first practice preaching sessions were held on Monday, Feb.26 and Monday, March 5, with the second round scheduled for April 16 and 23. Besides their daily work, both faculty and students stay busy with preaching, teaching catechism, and leading Bible societies in the churches. Continue in prayer for the seminary and its precious work.
The seminary will take it Spring break from April 1-7. We will still be open and staff will be available for any needs that arise.
Interim Course: The seminary’s interim course this year was “The Theology of John Calvin,” taught by Prof. R. Cammenga. Classes met from Monday, January 8, 2018 through Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Videos of the interim course on Calvin's Theology are being made available here. Follow the links below to watch the videos.
Prof. B. Gritters recently led an officebearers' conference on the Reformed practice of family visitation prior to a meeting of the PRC Classis East (Jan.9, 2018). The audio portion of this presentation is now available at Hudsonville PRC's Sermonaudio page. Although the subject pertains to the work of the elders particularly, it is of benefit to all officebearers and to those in the office of believer.
The November 2017
PRT Journal is now available in digital
and print form. The pdf, Mobi, and ePub versions are all available on the
Journal page and
print copies are available at Seminary or by mail. Those on our mailing should receive
theirs in the
next few weeks. Look for another issue filled with good Reformed articles - one on
Martin and Katie Luther, another on God's covenant as revealed in the
Psalms, and plenty of book reviews.
On Wednesday, Sept.20 Rev. Douglas J. Kuiper
was installed as the tenth professor in the history of the PRC Seminary.
The installation/convocation service was held in Faith PRC
(Jenison, MI) and led by Prof. Russell Dykstra, whom Prof.
Kuiper will be replacing in a few years. Prof. Dykstra preached from
I Corinthians 4:1-5 with the theme, "The Professor of Theology as
Faithful Steward." We rejoice in this provision of God for our seminary and
pray God's richest blessing upon this servant of Christ as he prepares to
assume his responsibilities as professor of church history and NT studies.
For more on this significant event,
visit this page on the PRC website. Prof. Kuiper is currently
working on his Masters degree from Calvin Theological Seminary.
The PRC Seminary, with help from Faith PRC's Evangelism Committee, held a two-day 500th anniversary Reformation conference the weekend of October 27-28 at Faith PRC in Jenison, MI. The speeches were live-streamed and recorded. The audio versions may be found on this page. A special website was also created for the conference. Find that at www.500thReformation.com. Below is the special flyer that was used to promote the conference.
Did you know that some of the Seminary courses that were taught and taped in the recent past are now being re-taught in the Philippines - by means of videos?
Our missionaries there (Revs.D. Kleyn and D. Holstege) conduct regular classes with ministers in the Manila area, and in February of 2015 started using the videos from Prof.B. Gritters' course on Catechetics (how to teach catechism to covenant youth) and his course on Poimenics (pastoral care) in these "7M meetings" (see picture below).
And now he has added Prof.R. Cammenga's classes on Anthropology (doctrine of man) from this past semester. Our missionary testifes to the great value of using these Seminary videos in this class.
