  • ‘In Search of Biblical Justice’ Virtual Conference

    June 17, 2021 - June 18, 2021

    The newly established Institute for Biblical Justice (IJF) at the John Leland Center for Theological Studies invites you to a virtual Inaugural Symposium:  In Search of Biblical Justice.  This event engages leaders in ministry and the academy to explore the following questions:

    Is there hope for the crises and confusion in our society or world? Can the church in- spire future generations toward biblical justice? How can the Bible lead to effective transformations that last across generations?

    Biblical justice is a primary answer to the myriad challenges we face today. For our inaugural conference, the Institute for Justice Formation brings together pastors, educators, practitioners, and conscientious believers to pursue biblical justice and tangible love for our times. Join us to discover how biblical justice unleashes God’s very best in us!
