Karl Barth (1886-1968), the Swiss-German professor and pastor, is regarded by many as a modern day "Church Father." The Center for Barth Studies was established in 1997. Administered by a board of seminary faculty, the Center sponsors conferences, research opportunities, discussion groups, and publications.
The Betsey Stockton Center for Black Church Studies exists to highlight the theological and religious witness, which arises out of the African American and African Diaspora Christian experience. The center helps to prepare men and women for vocational ministry or scholarly pursuits shaped by a wider knowledge and deeper appreciation of black life within American and global Christianity.
The Center for Theology, Women, and Gender (CTWG) was established to address issues related to the intersections of race, class, gender identity, and sexuality in church and society. The idea for the Center grew out of the Seminary’s longstanding commitment to redress inequalities at the Seminary, in the church, and in the world.

As part of an ongoing campaign to address racial injustice, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is sharing a wealth of antiracism resources — including studies, books and training — to equip the greater church to work against racism.

Public lecture given by A.R. Bernard February 4, 1997 "I pray that we don't wait for the powers that be to determine that racism in our nation is a social problem, because it's usually very late when they do. Who has the ability to make the change? We do. Because again,it's a spiritual issue. And all true change begins inside, because we live life from the inside out. Who can do it? Here we are. It's in our hands. We are that generation that have been empowered to be aware."

Urban ministries need to know and embrace the environment and culture around them, including the multicultural, multi-religious dynamics that shape the communities they serve. In the global context, the majority of the world now lives in the city, and there is an increasing need for workers to be trained to effectively lead ministries and social agencies in urban areas.
