Some pains stay with us and do not get healed. These pains can be physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional. Such chronic pains may take a lifetime to address. Despite our desire to resolve pain quickly, we eventually realize that we may have to find a way to live with chronic pains. Joyce del Rosario teaches on ministering and leading through pain.
Dr. Joyce del Rosario’s journey has been deeply shaped by her and her family’s active participation in her Filipino-American United Methodist community in Seattle where she grew up, as well as in a network of communities of color and progressive networks among Evangelical communities. She is an active and outstanding preacher and speaker.
Dr. del Rosario earned her M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary and her PhD from Fuller Theological Seminary School of Intercultural Studies. Her research interests include youth ministry with a special focus on teen moms and urban and multiethnic youth ministry, social justice and racial reconciliation, theological anthropology, marginalized women, and postcolonial Filipino-American theology.
