Theology Student Union

Theology majors and minors meet to discuss upcoming events

Created by Seattle Pacific University School of Theology students, the Theology Student Union is a gathering of undergraduate theology majors and minors interested in reflecting and acting upon God’s self-revelation to humanity, particularly as it relates to, critiques, and envelopes our culture.

  • TSU seeks to create a bond between all students in the School of Theology through discussion and participation in programmed events and forums both inside and outside the classroom.

  • TSU is student-run, sponsored and funded by the Associated Students of Seattle Pacific, as well as a grant from the SERVE (Spiritual and Educational Resources for Vocational Exploration) program through the Center for Scholarship and Faculty Development.

If you are interested in becoming involved with the TSU, contact Associate Professor of Educational Ministry and Practical Theology, Rev. Dr. Katherine M. Douglass, who serves as TSU faculty advisor, at

Annual Events

Fall Welcome Event for Theology Majors and Minors

Each fall our student leaders host a welcome event for our new majors and minors where students have the chance to meet one another and our School of Theology faculty and staff.

Spring Retreat at Camp Casey

Each spring we plan a retreat on Whidbey Island, the home of Camp Casey, where we hike, make s'mores, cook, worship, and rest together.

Palmer Lecture

Each year the School of Theology hosts a lecture by a leader in the field of theology. At this event our entire School of Theology community comes together to feast and learn together.

Theology Graduate Commissioning Service and Reception

Each spring we commission and send our graduating theology majors and minors during a time of worship for students, parents, and the School of Theology faculty and staff.

“Whether it has been in the context of the classroom, over lunch in Gwinn, a cup of coffee in the Weter coffee shop, or even in their homes, faculty and professors have made studying theology a life-giving experience by taking the time to invest in our lives, and allowing us to share in theirs.”
