Dwight Radcliff, a PhD candidate in Fuller’s School of Intercultural Studies, holds an MDiv from Fuller with an emphasis in multicultural ministry and African American church studies. A Parish Pulpit Fellow and William E. Pannell Doctoral Fellow, he focuses his research on the ways Hip Hop culture has been formational for African American preachers. In addition to serving as an adjunct professor, he is a church planter and lead pastor of The Message Center, a multicultural, multigenerational, urban congregation in Gardena, California. His family, however, is his first ministry. Radcliff and his wife of 20 years, DeShun, have two daughters.
