Estrelda Alexander, president of William Seymour College, preaches on the role of dreams in spiritual formation, the paradox of receiving visions from God, and developing strategies to enact them.

As president of William Seymour College and an ordained minister in the Church of God, Dr. Alexander is a leading scholar of Black Pentecostalism and the author of numerous books, essays, and journal articles. Prior to founding the college, she served as professor of theology at Regent University School of Divinity and as associate dean for community at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. After serving as a pastor and church planter, she has more recently focused on providing theological education for underserved communities.

Dr. Alexander was the keynote speaker of the 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. Sponsored by the Pannell Center for African American Church Studies, the celebration provides a forum for distinguished African American scholars and clergy to enrich the lives and ministries of Fuller students, alumni, and the Southern California community with the nation’s best examples of African American scholarship and preaching.
