Ottawa Theological Hall Institutions
Established in 1982, Ottawa Theological Hall (OTH) is one of the few Reformed and Presbyterian theological seminaries in Canada. It is located in the heart of Ottawa, the capital of Canada, and is under the authority of the St. Lawrence Presbytery of the RPCNA
The purpose of OTH is to provide a teaching institution in Canada from which to train faithful Canadian men for pastoral ministry, and to see churches planted throughout the Commonwealth of Canada. From the beginning, OTH has been open to both men and women to study. Our desire for OTH is twofold:
1. To train and prepare men for pastoral ministry; and
2. To equip all the saints for the work of a full-orbed ministry.
OTH is a four-year program, with the courses arranged in a four-year cycle. We strongly encourage everyone, men and women, boys and girls, to attend (for credit or audit) and “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).
The professors at OTH are all faithful pastors and teachers who are committed to training men for the work of the ministry. For the professors who are local, classes are held throughout the academic year in the evenings. Other professors are brought in to teach from near and far. For these professors, courses are generally given in a week-long segment in the evenings and Saturday. The seminary shares the building with the Ottawa Reformed Presbyterian Church.
Students from OTH have gone on to many different vocations. Men have gone into full-time ministry. Many more men and women have received varying degrees of training to help them in their various callings and walks with the Lord, including missionary work.
