The Beauty and the Glory of the Last Things: Conference 2018

Nothing fills the Christian’s heart with more joy than the anticipation of seeing Christ face to face and joining him in his eternal glory. We were able to celebrate that hope at August’s Puritan Reformed Conference (recordings linked here), with sessions on the day of the Lord, the signs of the times, hell, the final victory, the marriage of Christ and the church, and other topics.

For a taste of what we feasted upon at the conference, watch the video below.

Practical Lessons from John Calvin’s Life

What does it mean to offer our hearts to God, promptly and sincerely? That was the motto of Genevan Reformer John Calvin, whose teaching helped Reformed Christians present themselves as living sacrifices unto the Lord. If you were not able to attend the recent tour cruise with us on the Rhine River, but would like to sit in on my lecture about what we can learn from the life of Calvin, please watch the video below.

For immediate release: July 2, 2018

Grand Rapids, MI / Glenside, PA / London, UK—Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (“PRTS”), Westminster Theological Seminary (“WTS”) and the Pastors’ Academy at London Seminary (“PA”) today announced the expansion of the Master’s (ThM) Program in London, UK.

The renowned ThM program of WTS in London will transition from WTS to PRTS, under the auspices of which it will be expanded to offer three tracks of study: Biblical Studies, Systematic Theology, and Historical Theology.

Peter Lillback, President of WTS, comments, “We are pleased that the ThM program in London will be continuing and expanding under the leadership of PRTS—a trusted partner of Gospel ministry training.”

Joel R. Beeke, President of PRTS, says, “We trust that, by God’s grace, this newly established program, in addition to our PhD program in London, will stress both solid Reformed academic training and vital piety, and will serve to strengthen the church and the academy in unprecedented ways.”

The program will be served by faculty of PRTS, WTS, and partners such as Greystone Theological Institute. Garry Williams, Director of Pastors’ Academy in London, writes, “The ThM program will bring the deep, theological resources of PRTS within reach of students in the UK, especially pastors seeking to enrich their preaching and teaching ministries. The program will immediately open up the range of theological disciplines that we can offer in London, including Biblical Studies, Systematic Theology, and Historical Theology. We are grateful to God for providing PRTS as a generous and zealous partner for furthering the cause of theological training in the UK and beyond.”
