Claremont School of Theology

About CST: From its inception, Claremont School of Theology has been an intentionally ecumenical institution seeking to provide theological education for a diverse community in the context of a rich spectrum of educational resources. The partnership with the DSF helps the school to achieve those important goals.


DSF was the first ecumenical partner of Claremont School of Theology. The partnership was established in 1960 in Claremont both to provide services to Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ students in Claremont, and contribute to the educational resources for ministry at Claremont School of Theology.


It is located in Los Angeles and has connections throughout southern California. Most degrees are available in person or in online/hybrid format

Joint Faculty: Rev. Belva Brown Jordan.


This partnership between Claremont School of Theology and DSF makes Claremont a unique and dynamic place for Disciples and UCC students to pursue education for ministry.

Pacific School of Religion

About PSR: By means of DSF, the Pacific School of Religion maintains a close relationship with the Disciples of Christ. Partly because of the denominational partnership between the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ, in1987 PSR and DSF established a formal affiliation. The Dean of DSF in Berkeley holds a joint appointment at PSR and DSF, and the DSF Berkeley office is adjacent to the PSR campus. This provides a particularly strong Disciples presence at PSR, a channel of communication between the school, the Northern California / Nevada Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the wider denomination.


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.

Disciples Faculty: Rev. Dr. Aizaiah Yong
