The John Leland Center for Theological Studies (JLC) offers a cutting-edge curriculum and international faculty that are well-suited for the cosmopolitan environment of the greater Washington, D.C. area. With strong ties to a wide range of Baptist and evangelical churches, Leland boasts one of the most ethnically and racially diverse student bodies among area seminaries. This is a place to study God’s word and prepare for ministry with brothers and sisters from a wide range of churches. 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.
JLC offers the MDiv, MTS (Master of Theological Studies), and MCL (Master of Christian Leadership) degrees. It also offfers a Diploma in Theology for students who have not completed a bachelor’s degree. JLC specializes in evening courses, some weekends, and some online learning. It has satellite campuses in Hampton Roads and Roanoke, VA (see JLC website).
