Associate Director of Christian Life at the University of Southern California
Bekah Estrada is the Co-Founder and Director of Christian Life at USC.
She supports the body of Christ by creating opportunities for the 50+ Christian groups at USC to collaborate, communicate, and partner together. Motivated by unity and mutual flourishing, Bekah and her team believe modeling a collaborative approach to ministry will equip student leaders to serve their community at USC and beyond.
Bekah values building bridges across differences to foster mutual learning in students’ spiritual journeys. This leads her to organize various interfaith/ecumenical discussions, as well as mentor student leaders with Veritas Forum and The Coastlander Christian-thought journal at USC. Bekah’s areas of interest include interfaith dialogue, leadership development, climate change and sustainability, racial justice, and advocating for women and sexual assault survivors.
Bekah received an M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary and a B.S.S. in Ministry and Leadership Studies from Hardin Simmons University. She grew up on a farm in Earth, Texas and currently resides in Pasadena, California. In her spare time Bekah enjoys yoga, gardening, listening to music/podcasts, and grabbing coffee with friends.
