Pacific School of Religion maintains a close relationship with the Disciples of Christ through the Disciples Seminary Foundation. PSR and DSF established a formal affiliation in 1987, partially because of the denominational partnership between the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ.
Disciples Seminary Foundation creates and welcomes partnerships with students, schools, church organizations and donors in order to support the formation of leadership in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ.
Their vision is a theologically educated and amply supported leadership equipped and inspired for ministry in a rapidly changing world.
PSR/DSF alumni/ae have said that their affiliation with DSF while at PSR provided them the intimacy and denominational opportunities of being at a Disciples seminary, while enjoying the wider ecumenical and interreligious educational experiences of PSR and the GTU.
