Worship and Spiritual Life

In our life together at PSR, we rely on God's presence among us as we build a community that values diversity, mutual respect, and listening and learning from one another. The importance of these values transcends PSR: when we work to create community with others different from ourselves, we acquire important skills for leadership in churches and other faith communities.

At PSR, you're sure to be with others different from yourself. We welcome students who have diverse theological views and cultural backgrounds; international students; new college graduates as well as second-career professionals; heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students; families with children; and people with disabilities.

Our students relate to campus life in a variety of ways, depending on where they live and work: Half our students are in residence, living in dorms on campus or adjacent apartments. Half are commuters, from as close as Berkeley or Oakland and as far away as Reno or Seattle. Commuters make an important contribution to the life of our community, helping to connect life on campus to diverse faith communities around us.
