Relationship. This one word captures the essence of the John Leland Center for Theological Studies. We at Leland value the gracious gift of relationships in the formation of our students. We believe that deep learning takes place best in community. In the context of mutual trust, we read, discuss, and pray together; and in the process, we discover that the Original Relationship — the Triune God — has been working with us and forming us. We invite you to join our Leland community.
