Westminster Seminary in Texas Becomes Redeemer Seminary in Dallas

The following announcement was made to introduce Redeemer Seminary in Dallas, Texas.

In 1999 Westminster Theological Seminary began a Texas Campus to extend the knowledge of the glory of God in Christ through offering theological education grounded in the seminary’s core values and serving churches and communities in the Southwestern United States.

By God’s grace, the Texas Campus has graduated students who now serve churches and ministries across the United States. In 2009 Westminster Theological Seminary launched its Texas Campus as Redeemer Seminary, an independent institution which shares the core values and theological commitments upon which Westminster was founded. As Westminster and its campus in Texas have developed since 1999, the board and faculty of Westminster have recognized it is strategic for the mission of the seminary that Westminster and the campus in Texas pursue the mission as two distinct institutions which share in the theological commitments upon which Westminster was founded. In order for the daughter campus in Texas to be distinguished from its mother seminary, the campus in Texas is now established as Redeemer Theological Seminary and is governed by its own board of trustees.

The inaugural convocation of Redeemer Seminary took place on February 16, 2009 at Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas. Dr. Tim Keller was the speaker.
