Legacies provide sustained funding for ScholarLeaders’ strategic, long-term ministry and allow us to honor significant contributors to Christian leadership in the Global Church.
Honoring Dr. Paul and Rosemary Pierson: Paul and Rosemary served in Brazil and Portugal as church planters and educators for 17 years. After returning to the US, Paul served for 12 years as Dean of the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he was also Professor of the History of Mission and Latin American Studies. Paul served on the Board of ScholarLeaders for more than 20 years and is now an Emeritus Board Member.
Purpose: The Pierson Scholarship supports leaders studying at Fuller Theological Seminary, especially those in the field of Intercultural Studies or involved in missions leadership.
Anna exemplifies Paul Pierson’s commitment to missions and biblical theology. Originally from China, Anna served as a missionary and professor in Cambodia before pursuing doctoral studies at Fuller. Now, she is in the midst of writing her dissertation after a difficult year that included the death of her newborn daughter. Her husband is preparing to enter a Master’s in Theology program. Please pray for Anna and Kakda in this challenging time.
