Faith and work integration, pastoral leadership, marketplace leadership

Leadership, both in the marketplace and in the congregation, is not about selecting a community as much as it is about accepting a community. If it is healthy leadership, it will not be emotionally entangled as much as it will be geographically and circumstantially entangled. It will accept whoever is on the premises; faithfulness is of the highest order here.


Dr. Park, from an SF506 class on Reflections on Vocation


Wayne Park (DMin ’21) serves as chancellor of Fuller Texas. As a longtime resident of the Houston area, he brings to the role both on-the-ground experience and social research on the trends, economics, drivers, and spirituality that shape his great city. The son of a Korean-American immigrant entrepreneur, Dr. Park grew up learning to love both the marketplace and the church. Today, he is most comfortable straddling both worlds, seeking to connect Houston’s church leaders and marketplace professionals for the common good.

Before his appointment to the chancellorship, Park served as program director for Fuller’s De Pree Center (2020–2022) and as director of operations for Kingdom City Houston (2019–2022), a collective of more than a dozen churches and ministries that meet collaboratively in Houston’s Energy Corridor. He received his Doctor of Ministry from Fuller, where he focused on Faith, Work, Economics, and Vocation under Dr. Mark D. Roberts. He is ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church and has served in leadership positions for local, state, and national boards, commissions, and associations.

Dr. Park is married to Ashley and together they have two teenagers, Austin and Zoe. He enjoys long runs after church on Sunday with his Lab-Viszla, Bailey, along Houston’s bayou trails (yes, even in the heat and humidity).
