OTH Background

Established in 1982, 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  Canada. 


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 Saturdays. The seminary shares the building with the Ottawa Reformed Presbyterian Church.
