Forming leaders in mission, discipleship and evangelism to serve God’s ever-changing church.

Fall 2022 Covid-19 Updates

Please read the health and safety guidelines carefully if you will be participating on-site this semester. We will continue to closely monitor the trajectory of the pandemic and will update these protocols as events warrant. 


“The church is changing. We have to be prepared for that. And that is where
CDSP comes in.”
–The Rev. Jeckonia Okoth ’23
In the midst of the challenges of the pandemic, we have been asking members of the CDSP community what the seminary means to them and their vocations. 

The CDSP Distinction

CDSP students, faculty, and staff gather for Community Night

The only Episcopal seminary on the West Coast, CDSP forms leaders called to find new ways to create Christian communities and share God’s love. Through our partnership with Trinity Church Wall Street and an ongoing dialog with bishops and grassroots leaders, we have focused our degree programs on Christian mission, discipleship, and evangelism and on core leadership skills of contextual awareness, critical reflection, and public conversation; established a popular low-residency degree option for students balancing family obligations or professional responsibilities, and established partnerships that allow us to create distance learning curricula for individual dioceses.
