Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace
that is in Christ Jesus.
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses,
the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

Latest Seminary Notices
As a Seminary family, we rejoice with Sem.Ryan Barnhill and his wife Miranda in the birth of a healthy baby boy on Saturday, February 21. Nolan Ryan (9 lbs. 7 oz., 21 inches!) joins sister Mya at home as of Tuesday, Feb.24. All is well, for which we give thanks to the Lord of life and the Giver of covenant sons and daughters.
The Seminary's second semester is well under way (since Jan.20), as we enter the month of February. All of our "missing" students have returned - Ryan Barnhill from his internship, Aaron Lim from Singapore, and Stephan Regnerus and Justin Smidstra from illnesses, which limited their time at the Interim course. We are thankful to be at "full strength" as we start this new semester.
The students under faculty supervision have also begun their first round of "practice preaching" sessions (on Feb.9). This first round involves them in making and delivering their first Heidelberg Catechism sermon (with the exception of senior R.Barnhill). Remember to pray for these men as they go through this critical part of their training for the ministry of the Word.
Did you know that one of the Seminary courses that was taught last semester is now being re-taught in the Philippines - by means of videos? Our missionaries there (Revs.D.Kleyn and R.Smit) conduct regular classes with ministers in the Manila area, and earlier this month (February) started using the videos from Prof.B.Gritters' Fall 2014 course on Catechistics (how to teach catechism to covenant youth) in these "7M meetings" (see picture below). The missionaries testify to the great value of using these Seminary videos in this class.
The 2015 Interim course is now completed (Jan.5-14). This year’s special class was taught by Prof. Cammenga and is entitled “The Theology of John Calvin.” (pdf of course description). The eight sessions were video-taped and will be posted when the videos are edited. Look for those in the near future.
Our latest Seminary Journal (November 2014, Vol.48, No.1) is now available. If you would like to be added to our mailing list or wish to pick up a copy (no charge, although we do accept gifts), contact the Seminary office. The pdf copy of this issue is also now available, as well as the Mobi (Kindle) and Epub versions. Visit the Journal page to download this.
Our Seminary faculty participated in the Classis West Officebearers' Conference on preaching on Tuesday, Sept.23, 2014 at Peace PRC in Lansing, IL. *Note: The four speeches of this conference are now available in audio form on Peace PRC's Sermonaudio page. The links are provided here:
