George A. Gay


School of Theology

Founding Director of Centro Latino

Honoring the significance of racial equality brought to national prominence via the American Civil Rights movement, Fuller Seminary expanded the School of Theology to provide graduate theological education to Black and Hispanic ministers in the early 1970s. Fuller alumnus Dr. Gay returned to the Seminary as a member of the Hispanic Advisory Committee in 1973.

Eleven Hispanic ministers joined the Fuller community in Fall 1974. With Dr. Gay’s leadership, the program created the foundation for Fuller’s Hispanic Center, known today as Centro Latino. Today, Centro Latino has expanded to offer a Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry, a Master of Arts in Theology, and a Master of Divinity.
