Search Committee Chairman Dave Beré
The Presidential Search Committee, in charge of finding
Fuller’s next president, has released an opportunity profile outlining what
Fuller is seeking in a new leader and supplying information about how to apply
or refer a candidate.
In May, current President Richard J. Mouw announced his intention to retire at the end of the current academic school year.
Fuller Seminary’s Board of Trustees appointed a search committee that began
efforts in the search process in July.
The search committee, led by Trustee David Beré, is made up
of eight trustees, three faculty members representing each of Fuller’s schools,
and an at-large member.
“We invite your participation in this important search.
Thank you in advance for being a partner with us as we pray for God’s guidance
in this next season of leadership,” Beré said in a message on the presidential
The opportunity profile is the culmination of the search
committee’s meetings and feedback from the seminary and broader evangelical
The search committee distributed surveys, held focus groups,
and initiated discussions inviting input from faculty, administration,
trustees, staff, alumni, and friends of Fuller. The opportunity profile
represents the input of over 1,000 contributors, Beré said.
Nominations and applications will be reviewed through
December 31, 2012. The search committee will then begin the selection process
in early January.
