Office for Science, Theology, and Religion

Fuller Seminary’s Office for Science, Theology, and Religion Initiatives (STAR) helps develop and further projects at the nexus of the sciences and Christian faith, focusing its efforts in three main areas:

  • Training and supporting ministers in cultivating a science-informed theology and practice
  • Equipping and supporting scientists in advancing theologically informed science
  • Conducting and supporting new scholarship at the intersection of the sciences and Christian faith

STAR seeks to strategically identify specific initiatives at the nexus of the sciences and Christian faith, and to help develop and support those initiatives wherever they would most naturally grow and thrive.
