Berkeley School of Theology (BST) alum Rev. Dr. Marie Onwubuariri (M.Div ’04, D.Min ’17) has been called to serve as the new Associate General Secretary for Mission Resource Development for ABCUSA starting on January 1, 2021. Dr. Onwubuariri has served as Executive Minister of the American Baptist Churches of Wisconsin since 2014, and previous to that position she served as the Director of Admissions at American Baptist Seminary of the West, currently known as Berkeley School of Theology, for 5 years.

BST is proud of Dr. Onwubuariri for her service to American Baptists and for her upcoming position. In her new role Onwubuariri will lead efforts in which American Baptists are “United in Christ, Together in Mission” through the oversight of fund development, communications, marketing, and public relations to strengthen and sustain a climate and environment of increased giving to the American Baptist family and the Office of the General Secretary. Her time with us in Berkeley showed that she is someone committed to ABCUSA and the global church, and this opportunity for her to have a wider impact is just what we wish for all of our alums.

Please pray for Marie and her family as they move to a new phase of ministry in a new place and join us in congratulating this wonderful woman of faith!
