Garcia-Johnson, an associate professor of theology and Latino/a studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, is also the current associate dean for the seminary's Center for the Study of Hispanic Church and Community.
Prior to joining the Fuller faculty, in 2008, Garcia-Johnson taught for 10 years as an adjunct faculty member at Fuller. He also served as a regional minister with the American Baptist Churches of Los Angeles for 11 years and planted four new churches in Southern California. Born in Honduras, Garcia-Johnson immigrated to the U.S. as a young adult to complete a degree in electrical engineering. While in college, he committed his life to Jesus Christ and experienced a vocational conversion into philosophical and theological studies, leading him to commute between academia and the church.
Garcia-Johnson has published four books and is the co-author of Theology without Borders: Introduction to Global Conversations, with William Dyrness (Baker Academic, 2015). He is a gifted communicator who integrates scripture, systematic theology and sociology with the practice of ministry in a variety of multicultural contexts in Asia, Africa and the U.S. He is committed to facilitating environments for nurturing contemporary intellectuals and leaders, particularly among the second and third generations of Latinos/as, in building space for intercultural dialogue, and in supporting Latina women in ministry.
