The Northwest Theological Collaboration (NTC) exists to serve the people of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia in making education visible, collaborative, and creative.

We are facilitating a Theological Neighborhood in the Pacific Northwest, creating Theological Infrastructure to create the means for meaningful connection with God, the theological schools, the churches, the communities and the world.




The NTC is an initiative of the Pacific Association for Theological Studies (PAThS). The Pacific Association for Theological Studies (still) exists to encourage and advance the (formal and informal) study of theology in the Pacific Northwest.

PAThS is a 501c3 nonprofit in the state of Washington. It is an Affiliate Member of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS), the leading Theological Accrediting agency, although we support schools facilitated by all the major educational and theological accreditors.
