A Free Reformed Seminary!


Welcome to The North American Reformed Seminary!


"Completely Reformed , completely online , and completely free!"


The North American Reformed Seminary desires to see theological education restored to the local church. Ministry preparation is, after all, a part of the church's discipleship task! TNARS seeks to serve the local church by providing an academic platform pastors can use in the training of their members for ministry and in the training of men called to the work of the gospel ministry.  Our vision is to help prepare a new generation of Reformed pastors who are passionate for the glory of God, the proclamation of the Gospel, and the equipping of the church for ministry - without the financial obligation of the traditional seminary!


How can we do this?  By offering a challenging curriculum coupled with pastoral mentoring and oversight (the old Puritan apprenticeship model), the student receives both the strong theological foundation and practical ministry skills necessary for effective ministry.
