- Reformed Theological Seminary
Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) is a
non-denominational, evangelical Protestant seminarydedicated to training current and future leaders (especially in its Presbyterianand Reformed branches) to be pastors, missionaries, educators, and Christian counselors. It maintains a belief in the inerrancy of the Bibleand generally follows Reformedtradition, including Covenant Theology. It was founded in Jackson, Mississippiand also has campuses in Orlando, Florida, Washington D.C.and Charlotte, North Carolina.
One of the unique features of RTS is its governance. Founded out of the liberal-conservative tensions of the
Presbyterian Church in the United Statesduring the 1950s and 1960s, the seminary is held together by an active Board of Directors exercising oversight through its administration. RTS does not employ the traditional tenure system for its faculty. The RTS leadership consists of institutional support and individual campus administration. Each campus has its own president that reports to the Chancellor. The present Chancellor and CEO of RTS is Robert "Ric" Cannada, Jr. The president of RTS Orlando is Frank James. The president of RTS Charlotte is Michael A. Milton. Guy Richardson is the president of RTS Jackson, Mississippi. The president of the RTS Virtual Campus is Andy Peterson.
