The Global Ecumenical Theological Institute (GETI) 2018 is a global ecumenical short-term study and exposure programme in accompaniment of the World Mission Conference in March 2018 in Arusha, Tanzania.
The arts not only mirror cultural change, they can bring God’s healing to cultural brokenness. Through Brehm Center courses, programs, and events guided by Director Mako Fujimura’s vision for Culture Care, leaders learn to critically integrate theology and the arts as they creatively explore and express their own callings.
The Brehm Center works in tandem with Fuller’s Schools of Theology, Intercultural Studies, and Psychology to provide a number of programs, courses, and forms of support.

We all know that saints are dead and respectable. But St Paul called all the people of God saints whether they were behaving like saints, sinners or something much more ordinary. What if God is showing us the glory, the grace and the transformative love of his presence in the people who happen to be there, whether we like it – and them – or not? And could it possibly be that God is calling us to be saints as well, however unlikely that seems?
