Description
Organized in 1972 as the Asian American Center for Theology and Strategies and incorporated in 1974, the name was changed to Pacific and Asian American Center for Theology and Strategies in 1977 to reflect inclusiveness of constituencies. PACTS was an ecumenical center for research, resourcing, recruiting, training, and consciousness-raising which sought to promote the fulfillment of God's mission through the ministries of the churches and the service of community groups.
Background
The formation of Pacific and Asian American Center for Theology and Strategies (PACTS) grew out of the need "to re-think faith and reorient ministries in the light of the emergence of ethnic consciousness in the late 1960s." (PACTS information article, 1985; Box 6 ff 9.)
