Who We Are

Grand Rapids Theological Seminary of Cornerstone University was founded as a degree-granting institution in 1948. Today, Cornerstone and GRTS share a 130-acre campus less than five miles from downtown Grand Rapids and operate under a single board of trustees and university president. The seminary is located in the Leon J. Wood Seminary Building, which opened in 1977, and it has its own administrative staff and faculty.

What We Value

GRTS enacts its mission based on the core values of biblical worldview, spiritual transformation, critical thinking, Christ’s Church, disciplinary integration, lifelong collaborative learning, cross-cultural understanding and diverse community. You can learn more about these core values in the About GRTS section.


MinistryConnect is a free online resource of GRTS to the Christian community, which allows employers to post positions they are seeking to fill and to search for ministry leadership candidates. It also allows candidates to post a profile and search for available ministry leadership positions. Browse positions, register as a candidate or organization, or post a position at ministryconnect.cornerstone.edu


GRTS offers several events each year for alumni, current students, and friends of GRTS to get involved in the seminary community including Talking Points, Thursday Evening Bible Class, and Women's Studies Lecture Series.
