  • General Information
    About Pacific School of Religion

    The Pacific School of Religion adopted this direction statement in 1998–99 to guide the school's efforts. Pacific School of Religion is committed to serving God by equipping historic and emerging faith communities for ministries of compassion and justice in a changing world. We affirm our historic mission to educate men and women for ministry and other forms of religious leadership and to be a center and resource for Christian thought in an interfaith and pluralistic context. We affirm our ecumenical and Christian heritage and commitment as an open and affirming community that honors diversity and presses toward racial, gender, sexual orientation, ecological, and economic justice. PSR's commitments find expression in innovative programs of scholarship and education for clergy and laity. Strong faith communities require an integration of faith and reason, theory and practice, piety and critical intellect, tradition and creativity. We seek to embody these values and disciplines in our programs and our common life. PSR's location in a dynamic metropolitan area in the western United States, on the edge of the Pacific Basin, and adjacent to the University of California is a special resource and responsibility. As a member of the Graduate Theological Union and in partnership with our supporting denominations and local faith communities, we place high value on the search for truth, clarity of theological insight, artistry in the presentation of the Gospel and creation of community, strong reliance on faith in divine activity within and among us, and honesty, mutual respect, and integrity in our pastoral, educational, and administrative work. The PSR logo is interpreted as a vine growing boldly in new directions, drawing life and energy from the ground—the many cultures and faith traditions—in which it is rooted.
