A new academic year in our newly renovated building! We are deeply thankful and very excited to welcome our new and returning students into our building for another year of learning about his Word and growing in his grace. After convocation our year begins with Orientation Day on Sept 11 and the opening chapel and first day of lectures on Sept 12. At this time we ask your prayerful support for the following matters:

  • At this year's convocation on Friday, Sept 8, 8PM at Redeemer University auditorium, we look forward to the graduation of six students, as well as a keynote speech by our recently retired professor of Ministry and Mission, Dr. Arjan de Visser. His successor, Dr. Reuben Bredenhof, will also be officially installed as professor during this ceremony. Everyone is warmly invited! Please pray for the Lord's blessing on this "milestone" convocation.
  • Please ask our heavenly Father to guide and encourage our four new incoming students as they settle into the Hamilton area, some of them with their families.
  • Give thanks to the Lord that the renovations of our building could be completed. The renewed facility looks great and it is so much more spacious and space-efficient than it was before. You are also invited to join us for an open house on Saturday, Sept 30, 10AM-2PM.
  • Please also remember the Gootjes family as they adjust to life without their dear husband, father, and grandfather, who was CRTS's former professor of Dogmatics, Dr. Nicolaas Gootjes.

Thank-you to everyone for your prayerful and financial support. It is truly appreciated!

Dr. Jason Van Vliet, principal
