About John Leland Center for Theological Studies

Leland’s cutting-edge curriculum and international faculty are well-suited for the cosmopolitan environment of the greater Washington, D.C. area. With strong ties to a wide range of churches and denominations, 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 have three master's degree programs.  The M.Div. for those preparing to serve as pastors, a Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S) for those who wish to teach in an academic setting and the Master of Christian Leadership (MCL) for those preparing for local church ministry as a church staff minister, lay leader, or Christian leader in a non-church organization.  Our School of Ministry offers a Diploma in Theology for those who wish to prepare for ministry, but have not completed a bachelor's degree.  You will find that no matter what level or area of ministry you feel called to serve, there's a place for you at Leland.
