In his role as senior fellow, Jue will represent the mission and vision of the College to national and international audiences, and will consult on the Religious and Theological Studies major at King’s.

Jue says, “It is a great privilege to be appointed Senior Fellow of Christianity and Culture. Educating and preparing future leaders to make a significant impact in our society is a critical mission for our day. I am excited to contribute to this bold and worthwhile endeavor at The King’s College in this new role.”
