Church Divinity School of the Pacific (CDSP)

The only Episcopalian graduate theological seminary on the West Coast, CDSP integrates scholarship, reflection, worship, spirituality, and the practice of ministry to provide intellectually rigorous theological education. Our ordination and academic programs offer spiritual formation for people who will, in a time of religious and cultural pluralism, lead the church in participating in God’s mission, forming Christian disciples, and proclaiming the Gospel. Women and men attend classes at our historic campus or online from urban and rural settings, small towns, and parishes of all sizes around the world, contributing to the diversity of the unique ecumenical, inter-religious, and multicultural academic setting of the GTU. CDSP is a member of the Episcopal Church.
