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.
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.)
