Bryant Theological Seminary is an historic African-American Bible college and seminary, a part of the General Missionary Baptist Convention. It was founded in 1937, at the height of the Great Depression. The Reverends I. B. Harmon and G. P. Haynes, on behalf of the Willacoochee Missionary Baptist Association, which owned about ten acres of land and two wood frame buildings here, offered the land for such use if the GMBC would pay off the debt owed by the association. It has grown extensively in its nearly 75 years of existence, and today features modern dormitories, an auditorium, and research facilities. It was named for Dr. Peter James Bryant, pastor of the Wheat Street Baptist Church in Atlanta, and his wife Sylvia.
