Location and background are important aspects of the Seminary, but far more important is the Seminary's unashamed commitment to Scripture and dedication to practical ministry.

Wholeheartedly committed

A Welcome address from the President Dr. Cornelis P. Venema

Mid-America Reformed Seminary is wholeheartedly committed to the biblical Gospel, the infallibility of the Word of God, and the biblical riches of the Reformed confessions. The mission of Mid-America is to provide the best training possible for men for the ministry of the Word and sacraments in churches disposed to call men trained in the Reformed faith.


Our Purpose

Our purpose is to prepare pastors for gospel ministry and to train others to serve in various Christian venues. That purpose becomes clear in a curriculum designed to develop our Master of Divinity students intellectually, pastorally, and spiritually. Our instructors provide a thorough instruction in God’s Word and a solid grounding in the Bible’s essential doctrines, while the practical theology courses and Ministerial Apprenticeship Program give students real-world experience. This is supplemented by our close, supportive community who encourages the spiritual maturity of our students.

Students enrolled in our Master of Theological Studies program also enjoy the benefits of this well-developed purpose. We provide solid theological and practical training to others whose vocational intention will benefit from a robust theological education.
