School Overview

Western Theological Seminary was founded in 1866, after seven Hope College graduates who sensed a call to ministry petitioned the General Synod of the Reformed Church for theological training in West Michigan. The seminary’s early years were a struggle, but over the last century, strong, visionary leaders led Western through program, building, finance and faculty expansions all in the name of preparing leaders for the church of Jesus Christ. Today the future is bright. In covenant with the Reformed Church in America, Western Theological Seminary is forming culturally-engaged leaders who will empower, renew, and plant congregations and ministries that participate in God’s ongoing redemptive work in the world.

WTS offers master's and doctoral degrees, as well as graduate certificates, that train women and men for ministry. Students needing more flexibility in their schedules can earn a Master of Divinity degree in a blended format.
