As you can see from the pictures below, exciting things are taking place at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. Students are back on campus, classes have commenced, and the building project is in full swing.
Although it only seems like yesterday that the present 20,000 square foot building was completed (2005 actually), we are already bursting at the seams. Additional professors, additional distance learning and library staff, and, above all, an increasing number of students from North America and overseas have put huge pressure on office, lecture room, and study space. We’re therefore,expanding the current facility by approximately 18,000 square feet to give us larger classrooms, 75% extra library space, several new offices, room for additional student carrels, enlarged student cafeteria and more.

Expansion costs are approximately $3.1 million (including furnishings and IT), of which we have about $2.3 million collected. That’s been a fantastic achievement, but it’s also meant that our operating find has taken a major hit as donations have focused on the new building fund. If you have a love for Reformed, experiential doctrine and piety, and wish to train students from North America and all over the world to go out into the world with the Gospel of sovereign grace, please consider partnering with the Seminary. To donate online or for more information simply visit INVESTING IN PRTS or email our Development Director, Chris Hanna <email@example.com>
Or come and visit us. Dr Beeke or I would be delighted to show you around and share the Seminary’s vision of a Reformed Church in every city of the world.
And here’s the artists’ impression of what it will look like when it’s finished.
