Dave de la Fuente is a third year doctoral student in systematic theology, with a dissertation project on a phenomenological reading of the Pentecost event that attends to the text's call to prophetic ecclesial witness against injustice and the gift of racial reconciliation and justice in the outpouring of the Spirit upon all flesh. Originally from New Jersey, Dave is a graduate of Fordham College at Lincoln Center and the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. He received a Louisville Doctoral Fellowship for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years, and has presented his research at both local and international conferences. Dave has significant experience working with patients with cancers of the head and neck, and is also active in the local church, and is serving as a part-time Campus Ministry for Retreats at Fordham. His research interests include pneumatology, phenomenology, ecclesiology, New Testament theology, and Pentecostalism. He and his wife enjoy hosting dinner parties. Dave also loves running, cooking, watching the New York Rangers, and playing the guitar.
