At the John Leland Center for Theological Studies, we take seriously our mission to equip “transformational leaders for the global ministry of Jesus Christ.” Transformational leaders demonstrate competency, confidence, contextual vision, and connectedness to bring about change in their spheres of vocational calling.
Whether you are preparing to serve in congregational ministry, parachurch or non-profit organizations, the business workplace or academia, Leland has a program tailored to provide training for that pursuit. Our faculty are dedicated to cultivating excellence in scholarship as well as in engaging in the complexities of ministering in the local church, community and workplace. Our aim is to foster theologically reflective and contextually meaningful, kingdom-focused leadership. Our diverse community of faculty and students from a variety of ethnic and denominational backgrounds provides a dynamic setting in which to explore and understand the global nature of the church.
Our Master’s Degree programs include:
Leland also offers two graduate certificates that can serve as a stepping stone to further education as well as provide a foundation for a life-long pursuit of transformational living.
