On October 3, 2022, Christian author and teacher Richard J. Foster presented an award in his name to pastor and fellow author Trevor Hudson at a special October gathering on the campus of George Fox University. A selection committee selected Hudson as the first recipient of the Richard J. Foster Award in Spiritual Formation. The award recognizes those whose intellectual and practical work helps others come into an ongoing transformational relationship with Jesus Christ.
Trevor Hudson is the author of more than 20 books, the most recent of which, Seeking God: Finding Another Kind of Life with St Ignatius and Dallas Willard, was released in September. He is also an ordained minister in the Methodist Church of South Africa.
After spending more than 40 years in pastoral ministry, Hudson now gives his time to lecturing, teaching and writing in the areas of spiritual formation and spiritual direction. He lectures at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California, and works closely with the Martin Institute and Dallas Willard Research Center, at Westmont College and Renovaré Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation, a Christian organization Foster founded that is dedicated to helping people become more like Jesus.
