For nearly a century, Rutherford Hall has served as the home of RPTS. Since its acquisition by the Seminary in 1923, thousands of students have been prepared for the Gospel ministry inside its library and classrooms. If walls could talk, it would be remarkable to review the countless hours of instruction heard by these rooms. Rutherford Hall, with the addition of a few of its surrounding buildings, continues to serve as an important platform for ministry to all corners of the globe. But after so many decades housing all this activity, this elegant old building is in need of some loving attention herself.

Save the Gables…Secure the Future

To ensure the ministry of the Seminary continues unhindered from this place, the Board of Trustees has launched a $3 million campaign to repair, refurbish, and restore The Gables and to establish an endowment for the ongoing maintenance of Seminary properties.
With care, these facilities have a lot of years left in them. We hope to see many more thousands equipped in these classrooms over coming generations. We hope that you will prayerfully consider joining with us to support this practical need for the ongoing work of the Church!

The funds raised during this eighteen-month, three million dollar campaign will be used as follows:

  • SLATE ROOF REPLACEMENT $500,000
  • GABLE RESTORATIONS $800,000
  • KITCHEN AND BASEMENT RENOVATIONS $400,000
  • FACILITIES MAINTENANCE ENDOWMENT $300,000
  • OPERATING CAPITAL DURING THE CAMPAIGN $1,000,000
  • CAMPAIGN TOTAL $3,000,000

We are two-thirds of the way there but help is still needed. To participate in the campaign, please contact Mark Sampson, Director of Institutional Advancement at 412-731-6000, or you can make an online donation here.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INVESTMENT, WHICH WILL HELP TO PREPARE THE FUTURE LEADERS OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST.

Michael LeFebvre, President, Board of Trustees
