Why Give to Greenville Seminary

Our Lord Jesus Christ has promised that His faithful Church shall always abide and thrive whatever its circumstances in this world may be. As we survey the current state of the church on earth, we wonder how this could be. Yet the promise is sure, and a Church faithful to God's Word will find the ancient weapons of its warfare and the time-tested tools of its task are more than a match against the world and its influences. We are convinced, furthermore, that gifted and well-trained Gospel ministers are God's keys for unlocking His holy mysteries.

Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary is committed to equipping powerful, articulate proclaimers of the Good News of Salvation revealed in God's Holy Word, as articulated in the Westminster Standards. If you are considering Greenville Seminary as a worthy recipient of your supporting resources, you are likely someone who highly values the commitment which we share to the timeless truths of the Holy Scriptures and the doctrines of faith and life which the Protestant Reformation rediscovered and systematized from God's Word.

Theological education that provides preachers with the tools and weapons to stand against the spirit of the age and the deceits of the ages requires worthy scholarship and the resources necessary to provide that scholarship. Greenville Seminary is dedicated to offering our students an exemplary faculty, useful learning resources and facilities conducive to study. Our model of intimate learning requires small classes, meaning that we cannot depend on tuition alone to meet our financial needs. Indeed, some 70 percent of our material support must come from Christians who share our values and the sense of urgency we have to stem the tide against liberalism and compromise. We depend upon donations from individuals, churches, and church bodies for our operating budget, capital needs and student scholarships. While we are pleased and humbled to receive both small and large one-time gifts, a key to meeting our need for a reliable stream of income in seasons of plenty and of want is found in long-term and recurring pledges of support.

To facilitate your giving, Greenville Seminary offers a wide variety of support opportunities. These include automatic transfers from your checking account, secure electronic donations through this web site, traditional checks, yearly and monthly pledges, giving through estate planning and charitable instruments. Affiliated professional advisers are available to help you plan your seminary-oriented philanthropy. Our Development Office (development@gpts.edu) stands ready to assist you in exercising your desire to support the vital ministry of Greenville Seminary.
