Dear Friends,

Auckland Park Theological Seminary (ATS) has been providing theological training for more than 75 years to equip people called by the Lord for the ministry. ATS is registered as a private higher education institution with the Department of Higher Education in South Africa.

As a private institution, ATS does not receive any subsidies from the State for student education. As a result, there are students here, who, in order to pursue a professional career, must obtain SAQA-approved training, but whose training is not subsidised by the State. Thus, while our experience is that the majority of these students, who have been called by the Lord for the ministry, come from the poorest communities of our country. Paying for their studies is an insurmountable problem for many.

Christianity’s greatest challenge in the end times, the time of unimaginable seduction and heresy over the core truths of God’s Word, is the need for thorough and reliable training for pastors and ministers who proclaim the Gospel with skill and Godly fear. Our country and the world have never before been in greater need for well-equipped good Gospel ministers, for us and our children, as we need right now.

What I personally ask of you, in the Name of the Lord is: Please open your heart to the Lord to support ATS financially on a regular or once-off basis, so that ATS can proudly and honourably fulfil its obligations to its students and lecturers? In an extremely difficult time, you can become part of God’s solution.

Thank you very much for your help.

God’s richest blessings for your finances too.


Prof Jan Hattingh
Principal of ATS
