Ligonier Ministries is a Christian ministry founded and headed by R.C. Sproul.

The ministry is named after the Ligonier Valley just outside of Pittsburgh, where Sproul founded it as a study center for college and seminary students.

Sproul writes,

Since the beginning, our primary service to the church was to bridge the gap between Sunday school and seminary. Our commitment over the decades has never changed: to faithfully present the unvarnished truth of Scripture and help people grow in their knowledge of God and His holiness.
