Fuller Is Searching for a New President

In October 2021, Fuller Seminary President Mark Labberton announced the beginning of a presidential search and transition process that will culminate by June 2023. Fuller is searching for a new president who will embrace the exciting vision for Fuller’s future as a world-class training institution for impactful and healthy leaders.

As Fuller and much of the Christian higher education sector shifts toward remote learning, we are more committed than ever to the spiritual, emotional, academic, and vocational formation that has historically been a hallmark of the Fuller experience, no matter the delivery. By leveraging technology, Fuller is making its rigorous programs globally accessible while still providing unmatched holistic formation for students through online, hybrid, and in-person learning opportunities. And with FULLER Equip, Fuller’s signature digital learning platform, vocational leaders and laypeople alike can access practical, affordable training and formation resources created by Fuller experts.

The future of Fuller is a global learning community of deeply formed leaders who are influencing the world as bridge builders, healers, and bringers of the Evangel, the good news of Christ.

A Message from Mark Labberton

FULLER NEXT and beyond will be strengthened by having an exceptional new president who is Evangel-centric; gifted in the necessary ways for this role; especially attuned, if not prescient, to the rapid and profound changes in the church and in culture; courageously and strategically suited to the advancement of Fuller’s distinctive mission; and possibly different from me, whether in age, gender, race (or all of the above). That kind of president will be key to Fuller’s commitment to provide indispensable, formational education for diverse Christian leaders everywhere.
