Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary Cordially Invites You to Become a G.P.T.S. V.I.P.!
The seminary has always welcomed prospective students to visit our campus and community to get acquainted with our programs, faculty and facilities. We believe that this firsthand experience with Greenville Seminary is invaluable in helping students make a decision about investing their lives in pursuit of a calling to the Gospel ministry. We know that they will discover Greenville Seminary's uniqueness in providing them the tools for in-depth understanding of the Word of God and the preacher's vocation.
We are now expanding this experience to a broader constituency through our GPTS Visitor Interaction Program. In addition to prospective students, we invite others who are interested in the seminary's ministry to spend a day with us and learn more about our work by becoming a G.P.T.S. V.I.P.
A G.P.T.S. V.I.P. visit to our Taylors, South Carolina campus offers supporters, inquirers, retirees, high school and college students, prayer partners, and others interested in our ministry the opportunity for:
G - Gleaning knowledge and information from our faculty and staff about our educational ministry.
P - Planning your life for the possibility of ministry or other service in the church of Christ.
T - Touring our facilities, the Greenville area and the delightful Upstate South Carolina region.

Your G.P.T.S. V.I.P. visit to Greenville Seminary will provide you opportunities to sit in on classes, enjoy intellectual and scholarly inspiration, meet and interact with students and faculty, attend a chapel service, tour our elegant new seminary home, browse the library and bookstore, have lunch with seminary personnel, view a presentation about our educational ministry, learn about the process of ministerial preparation, and explore a wide variety of ways you can support the seminary.
G.P.T.S. V.I.P.s are welcome any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during the academic year – our regular chapel days. On Tuesdays, our chapel service is generally led by a guest minister from the community, on Wednesdays by seminary President Dr. Joseph Pipa, Jr., and on Thursdays by our students. We may also be able to provide more limited visit opportunities during other days or during periods outside the academic calendar. Combine your weekday campus visit with a weekend stay, and we will be delighted to provide guidance for the numerous sightseeing opportunities in our community and region, including historic sites, beautiful downtown Greenville, and the nearby Blue Ridge or Smoky Mountains.
