supporting emerging theological leaders for diverse Christian communities




"My local congregation has received numerous interns from DSF over the past decade. The quality of the interns and the qualities they bring to a local church are special and uncommon. DSF provides its students with teaching and guidance that allows them to thrive, moreover, it gives them a grounding in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) that they can find no where else. Thank you, DSF."

-- Rodney Gould, DSF board member and member of First Christian Church of North Hollywood

DSF students receive the highest level of theological education through our partner institutions: Claremont School of Theology, Pacific School of Religion, San Francisco Theological Seminary, and Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry.

Our students graduate with the skills for effective ministry and with spiritual resources for a lifetime of ministry. DSF also partners with the church to nurture and call future leaders.

All of this is made possible by generous donors, including Disciples Mission Fund, who share our vision of leadership for mission in an ever-changing future.

Our vision is a theologically educated and amply supported leadership equipped and inspired for ministry in a rapidly changing world.
