On Wednesday, November 6th, Mark Labberton was inaugurated as the fifth president of Fuller Theological Seminary. Students, staff, trustees and guests of Fuller gathered at First United Methodist Church of Pasadena for the ceremony.

Fuller Board of Trustees Chairman Cliff Penner said of President Labberton, "He's a man of incredible breadth. He is both a scholar, a pastor and a leader. In many ways, he's a Renaissance man because he paints art, he plays music, he speaks well, he travels well and yet he has a respect of the faculty, the endorsement of the board...and all the students love him."

There are short video clips of the ceremony to the side of the article on the Pasadena Star-News website.
