Science, Theology, and Religion Initiatives

Fuller’s Office for Science, Theology, and Religion Initiatives (STAR) helps develop and further projects at the nexus of the sciences and Christian faith, focusing on three areas: training and supporting ministers in cultivating a science-informed theology and practice, equipping and supporting scientists in advancing theologically informed science, and conducting and supporting new scholarship at the intersection of the sciences and Christian faith.
