Members of sponsoring churches receive a discount in the cost of particular programs like courses, the lay theological colloquy and others. Contact us for more information about how your congregation may become a sponsoring church.

What is the Reformed Tradition?

The Protestant Reformation is one of the most important developments that has taken place in the entire history of the Christian church. It began early in the 16th century with a series of actions taken by a German monk (and Biblical scholar) named Martin Luther who loved the Bible and came to believe that the church of his day was not faithful to the teaching of Scripture.

Company of Teachers

We have established the Company of Teachers to provide churches with a coveted resource - people who are qualified to teach on aspects of the Reformed tradition that are relevant to the concerns of Christians today (everything from church doctrine to politics and economics).


The Reformed Institute is pleased to offer an array of resources, including suggested readings from annual Convocations, Reformation Sunday and other sources, book reviews, the essay series "Whither the PC(USA)?", and our "Not Quite Beach Reading" list.

The Company Line

The Company Line is a monthly series (the second Wednesday of the month), with contributions from members of the Company of Teachers designed to relate the Reformed tradition to current events. Feel free to reproduce and circulate these pieces as you see fit.
