STUDENTS SHARE ABOUT FORMATION AT FULLER

"Thinking on Jesus’ presence shapes things in the light of God: with creativity, with hope, with a deep yearning for reconciliation. And this is what ‘formation’ is meant to provide, especially when we have others to walk alongside. Thank God we do in this class."

— MATTHEW SCHMITT, MDIV

Matthew-Schmitt
Rebecca-Stringer

"Being formed in community reminds me of God’s constant presence through the attentiveness, compassion, and vulnerability of other students. The vocation and formation group provided sacred space to listen for the voice of God and each other."

— REBECCA STRINGER, MDIV

OUR FACULTY

At Fuller you'll learn from leading scholars like these:

Lee_Kyong-Jin

KYONG-JIN LEE

Assistant Professor of Old Testament Studies
PhD, Yale University
Dr. Lee—who is of South Korean heritage, grew up in Bolivia, and later lived in Israel and Europe—brings a multicultural perspective that richly informs her teaching, research, and writings. “The different cultural backgrounds and methods of interpretation we have at Fuller make it a really stimulating place,” she says. Focusing on the Persian and Hellenistic periods of the Old Testament, she explores what we can glean from God’s movement among the people of that time.

Hargrave-terry

TERRY D. HARGRAVE

Professor of Marital and Family Therapy
PhD, Texas Woman’s University
A broadly known author and expert in forgiveness, intergenerational issues, and intensive marriage and family therapy, Dr. Hargrave brings to his teaching more than 20 years’ experience in the counseling room. “I believe that God’s redemption includes people learning how to restore love and trust to their own relationships,” he says. Offering gentle yet deeply informed guidance to his students, he is committed to both their academic and spiritual formation as Christian professionals.

ramirez-johnson_johnny

JOHNNY RAMÍREZ-JOHNSON

Professor of Intercultural Studies
MEd, EdD, Harvard University
Raised in a Puerto Rican household where he was persecuted for his Christian beliefs, Dr. Ramírez-Johnson has a passion for missiology refined by fire. With training in human development and cultural psychology—and extensive church planting experience—he teaches a practical theology that facilitates the gospel’s work among the unreached from inner cities to remote outposts. Students leave his classes with “the theological, social science, and spiritual tools” for wise missional engagement.
