This exciting year marks our 25-year anniversary: a time of celebration, a time of remembering, and a time of hope. We want to pause to mark the places we have been, and we also want to imagine the places we have yet to go. In the middle of a journey, we are celebrating God’s faithfulness and the resilience of our mission with the theme of Looking toward Jubilee.
Looking Toward Jubilee
Biblically, the practice of jubilee occurs after 7 cycles of sabbatical years, which means this time of reflection and restoration happens every fifty years. Jubilee pairs a sense of celebration with a sense of calling along with an understanding that we have a responsibility to use the blessings given by God for the good of our community and the flourishing of our world. Looking toward Jubilee, we want to use this milestone to celebrate what has been and to imagine what is to come in the next 25 years at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology.
The dream of The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology began around a kitchen table, where a gathering of a few passionate dreamers dared to imagine a new kind of theological, psychological, and cultural training. 25 years later, we are raising a generation of healers and rebuilders, trained to engage the brokenness of this world–with hope–for the healing of our churches, our communities, our neighborhoods, and the transformation of our world.
The Seattle School Alum
Here are some beautiful questions our students & alumni are engaging through their work:
- How can I guide others into becoming who God fully created them to be?
- How does a deeper understanding of theology lead to deeper connection and caring for the environment?
- What is the connection between domestic violence and racism?
- What does it mean to be an artist? How does art provide wholeness to brokenness?
Articles from The Other Journal
The Other Journal was founded by alums of The Seattle School in 2003 and later acquired by the school in 2007. The Other Journal has been publishing quality, multidisciplinary content from luminaries within their respective fields and emerging writers and poets for 19 years.

A Sacred Calling
Through 25 years, we have trained therapists, pastors, artists, and leaders, providing psychological tools and understanding along with theological grounding and practices, to serve God and neighbor through transforming relationships. Looking towards Jubilee, we imagine supporting and training hundreds and thousands of healers, practitioners, and changemakers in Seattle, around the country, and across the world over the next 25 years as we expand our learning offerings into new modalities and opportunities.
