Gerald C. Liu is assistant professor of worship and preaching at Princeton Theological Seminary. He earned his BA (Music) at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri (2000), his Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University (during which time he was also a theological fellow at Georg-August Universität in Göttingen, Germany) (2004, 2002-03), and his PhD from Vanderbilt University with a concentration in homiletics and liturgics (2013).
He has previously served as a British Methodist Minister in Nottingham, England (2005-07) before becoming ordained in the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church (2010). Currently, he volunteers as a minister in residence at Church of the Village, a United Methodist congregation in Manhattan.
His classes and publications explore curiosities about the arts as theological resources and phenomena, Asian American identity, multicultural worship, and the production of believable public Christian witness.
“Preaching is one of the most important things we do as pastors because it’s one of the last places in our society where people will actually listen, perhaps to things they may not agree with.”
