FULLER sermons

Professors, students, and preachers throughout Fuller’s extended community offer weekly spiritual reflections on topics at the heart of the seminary’s mission. It is Fuller's practice to allow speeches by our guests to be uncensored as a gesture of engagement in civil dialogue—a value to which Fuller Theological Seminary is deeply committed. We invite you to listen with hospitality, realizing that speakers reflect their own views and not necessarily views in harmony with the stated mission of Fuller. Music at the beginning and end of each episode is taken from a recent album entitled REVERE I RESTORE, created and recorded by members of the Fuller community under the leadership of Ed Willmington, director of the Fred Bock Institute of Music at the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts at Fuller Theological Seminary.
