WELCOMING STUDENTS TO A NEW LEVEL OF FORMATION
Starting this fall, 15 years of research and 4 years of organizational transformation work culminate in the launch of a whole new level of vocational and formational support for Fuller students—students who will reflect together, develop spiritual practices, and integrate classroom learning with their callings.
Here’s what students can look forward to:
Newly developed courses will help students discern their call and integrate practices of worship, prayer, community, and mission with their study [required for entering MDiv students; available to MAT, MATM, and MAICS students]
75+ Years of Ongoing Support
Students will be intentionally connected to a network of alumni we are cultivating to engage in ongoing mutual support—for a lifetime of personal, spiritual, academic, and global formation of their call to God’s mission in the world

Our Department of Call Development will offer students
- Vocational guides and resources

Spiritual Support Opportunities

“The campus is buzzing again, and I'm thrilled to share with our students the exciting new vision for vocation and formation that starts this fall here at Fuller. Students are ready for it – an experience at Fuller is rigorously academic and profoundly life-changing.
—Tod Bolsinger, VP for Vocation and Formation
What Students Have to Say About the New Focus
“The new Touchstone course has been a clear answer to my frequently uttered prayer: God, teach and mold my heart alongside my head.
“The things that Scott Cormode and Tod Bolsinger have been teaching have been things that I have been immediately integrating into my current ministry position as a youth pastor.
“We are getting excellent leadership training in how to manage inevitable role conflicts and competing commitments we experience in real life.
