Judy serves as a national consultant to the Theological Education Fund, working primarily with individual donors and specialized projects. Dr. Judy Yates Siker is a new National Consultant for TEF but she is not new to theological education. Judy has been teaching New Testament and Christian Origins for many years at both the university and seminary levels, most recently at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles, California and San Francisco Theological Seminary (SFTS) in northern California, where she served as vice president. In addition to both undergraduate and graduate classes in New Testament, her teaching has included Psychology, Spirituality, and Transformation and Rethinking Women in the New Testament.



Judy is an ordained teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church, PCUSA and has spent much time teaching, preaching and leading spiritual retreats throughout California and across the United States. Dr. Siker has publications geared both to the academy and the church. Her most recent publication, Who Is Jesus? What a Difference a Lens Makes, was the 2016-2017 Bible Study for Presbyterian Women across the US. She is married to Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Siker who is also recently retired from LMU and they have five children and three grandchildren. The Drs. Siker have recently moved to Raleigh, NC where, in addition to enjoying the delights of retirement, they plan to continue their work in the PCUSA.
