The Foundation for Reformed Theology

The Foundation for Reformed Theology is looking to start a new study group in Pittsburgh!  The Foundation, which was founded to honor the memory of John Leith, provides funding for individuals to gather and study Reformed Theology. 

This group, based in Pittsburgh, would focus on reformed theology in the emerging/missional/post-modern/post-colonial era, selecting from authors such as Lesslie Newbigin, David Bosch, NT Wright, Miroslav Volf, Jurgen Moltmann, Darrell Guder, John Franke, William Stacey Johnson, Walter Brueggemann, Nancey Murphy, Kendra Creasy Dean, etc. as well as inviting featured guests to guide our conversations. 

If you are interested in being part of such a group, please email Brian Wallace ( for more information.

About the Foundation for Reformed Theology:The Foundation for Reformed Theology was founded to honor the legacy of John Leith.  Dr. John Haddon Leith, was professor of theology at Union-PSCE from 1959 to 1990 who was named the M.E. Pemberton Professor of Theology in 1972.  At retirement Leith became professor emeritus and died in 2002.  He is the author of a number of books, including Introduction to the Reformed Tradition: A Way of Being in the Christian Community" and "Basic Christian Doctrine"

About the Foundation's Financial Support for meetings:The Fund pays up to $300 for travel expenses, $40 per night for five nights in seminary rooms or $50 per night for five nights for hotel rooms, and a $25 per diem for five days for meals. Individuals pick up the rest of the expenses, usually from continuing education money.  Normally, each participant turns in an expense voucher and is reimbursed.”
