About The RTS Collective

The RTS Collective is a collaboration of students in the RTS community to create a unique record with the prayer of offering music that is not only entertaining, but also spiritually edifying. We believe the Creator has given us gifts of creativity and we want to share these gifts with the Church that it my bolster our devotion to Jesus and lift His name high. Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, the first album produced by The RTS Collective, developed organically through the spiritual endeavor and artistic passion of students coming together to create something beautiful.

Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs Album

The first product of this defining passion, Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, is a 10-song album forged by artists in the RTS Orlando community. Each artist has recorded one hymn and one Psalm on the album, in the hope that it will be a blessing far beyond Orlando into the cars, homes, churches and hearts of God’s people.

All proceeds from the sales of this album will fund scholarships for RTS students in order to provide the means for students to receive the education and training that they need to be effective ministers of the Gospel.
