Fuller Theological Seminary Names New President

posted on September 13, 2022

Emily Belz of Christianity Today reports, “Fuller Theological Seminary, the largest Protestant interdenominational seminary in the country, named Black church theologian and missions leader David Emmanuel Goatley its next president.” Goatley will be Fuller’s first Black president and comes from a Baptist background. He said, “There’s a certain representation that is important … The journey of which I am part matters. I am a Black person in the United States, which means some of my story has to do with discrimination and segregation and slavery, and all of that helps to give insight to how I handle myself and how I seek to handle creation and engage with other people.”
