Please join us in celebrating Rev. Dr. Christy Newton (MDiv ’00) who was announced as the new executive director of Disciples Seminary Foundation (DSF)! Newton began her ministry on August 1. Rev. Dr. Newton will replace Rev. Belva Brown Jordan, who has served as Interim Executive Director of DSF since January 2020.
In addition to studying at PSR, Newton has also served as an adjunct professor and field education mentor. Along with her MDiv from PSR, Newton earned her Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Union, where she won the Chan Prize in Religion and Economics in 2006 and 2007, as well as the Newhall Scholar/Teacher Award in 2008 and 2010.
Pacific School of Religion maintains a close relationship with the Disciples of Christ (DoC) through the DSF. Since 1987, PSR and DSF have offered high-level scholarships to DOC students seeking our Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies, and Master of Arts in Social Transformation degrees.
