“Transforming Work in a Simple and Surprising Way”
Fuller’s Max De Pree Center for Leadership
Mark D. Roberts is the Executive Director of Fuller’s Max De Pree Center for Leadership. In this role, he is responsible for the mission, strategic direction, staff development, and financial sustainability of the Center. He also provides resources for the Center’s work as the principal writer of the Life for Leaders daily devotional (reaching over 7000 leaders) and as a major contributor to the De Pree Center blog. With years of experience as a pastor and non-profit leader, as well as a mentor to leaders in business and other fields, Mark is deeply committed to serving leaders in the marketplace, education, government, non-profits, arts, family, and the church. He envisions leaders flourishing in every part of their lives as well as their leadership, thus contributing to God’s work throughout the world.
Prior to coming to the De Pree Center, Dr. Roberts was Executive Director of Digital Media and Senior Director of Laity Lodge for the H. E. Butt Family Foundation in Texas. A Presbyterian pastor, he served churches in California, with a sixteen-year stint as senior pastor of Irvine Presbyterian Church. Roberts earned his BA magna cum laude in Philosophy, his MA in the Study of Religion, and his PhD in New Testament, all from Harvard University.
Roberts is the author of eight books, including Dare to Be True and Can We Trust the Gospels? His commentary on Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther in The Preacher’s Commentary examines leadership models in Israel’s life. His commentary on Ephesians in The Story of God series was published in 2016. He is a long-time contributor to the Theology of Work Project.
Dr. Roberts often teams up with his wife, Linda, a licensed therapist, spiritual director, and executive coach, to speak at churches and retreat centers. They worship together at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood.
Transforming our experience of work is sometimes complicated, involving systemic insight and cultural complexity. Yet, there are simple things we can do to enhance, not just our own experience of work, but also that of our colleagues. Mark Roberts will explore one of these simple things, offering reflection from Scripture and his own experience of work.
