Philosophy

Fuller seeks to provide educational experiences in nontraditional settings which will enable students to discover, develop and improve their gifts for service and ministry within the scope of the church’s overall mission. By offering fully accredited graduate courses in a variety of locations at convenient times, Fuller makes theological education possible for many church leaders, church staff members, Bible study leaders, business people, homemakers, professionals and others whose careers or circumstances preclude full-time study.

Houston provides:

  • Theological education for the development of lay persons for leadership in ministry in the local church and community;
  • Prospective theological students with experience in church ministry and Christian community while beginning their studies and testing their callings;
  • Students preparing for, or already involved in full-time ministry, to complete most or all of their theological education without leaving their area of residence and service; and
  • Resources to pastors for the development of local church educational programs and for personal and professional enrichment.

Phoenix provides:

  • The completion of the Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy in a convenient afternoon and evening format; and
  • The opportunity to complete practical training in a variety of local agencies.

A regional campus is a community of learners-practitioners-scholars in ministry who seek to know God better, to understand God’s revelation more fully and to do God’s ministry more effectively. Fuller’s regional campuses provide education of academic excellence with nontraditional schedules. Through course work at a regional campus, students encounter a concept of ministry which takes seriously the charge to “equip the saints for the work of ministry.”

Faculty

Both regional campuses have several resident faculty members, as well as a number of adjunct or affiliate faculty from the local area. Other resident and adjunct faculty members travel to the regional campus sites to teach courses. The adjunct and affiliate faculty are qualified professors, pastors, Christian psychologists and leaders in national and international Christian organizations. These persons join regular seminary faculty members in offering courses in areas such as biblical studies, church history, theology, philosophy, ethics, ministry, missions, languages, and counseling. All resident and adjunct/affiliate faculty sign the Fuller Theological Seminary Statement of Faith.

Course Offerings

Classes offered at regional campuses each quarter are fully accredited equivalents to those offered at the Pasadena campus. Quarterly class schedules and expanded course descriptions (which include course objectives, required reading, assignments and other information) are available on the Fuller website.
