I share this announcement with thankfulness to God for his grace in my life, with gratefulness and love for my current church–Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church, with long-time admiration for the ministry of Reformed Theological Seminary, and with excitement about ministry with the RTS team in the days ahead.

Dr. Mike Milton, president of RTS/Charlotte has been serving as the interim president of RTS/Orlando and we appreciate his service to the Orlando campus during this interim period.
We look forward to serving with Dr. Sweeting and welcoming his family to the Orlando campus as we continue to prepare men and women for various forms of ministry around the world leading multitudes to faith in Jesus Christ and building His Church.
