“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

An Episcopal seminary shaped by the West Coast context, 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. 

On January 31, 2023, CDSP announced that it would respond to increasing demand for online learning and flagging enrollment in residential programs to focus entirely on its low-residence Hybrid Program for MDiv and Anglican Studies students.
