Dr. Rene Padilla and Dr. John M. Perkins were founders of a distinct theo-praxis in their geographic and ministry contexts. Their models of ministry focused on social, economic, political, ecological, and spiritual restoration for the marginalized in Latin America and the US. This event will explore the intersection between the theological contributions of misión integral through the lens of Dr. Rene Padilla and the philosophy of Christian community development through the lens of Dr. John M. Perkins. This event is put on by CCDA, World Outspoken, Candler Foundry and Candler School of Theology’s pastoral leadership certificate program
In Part 1, we want to reflect on the personal influences/experiences, the key intellectual shifts, and ministry drives that formed both Padilla and Perkins. We want to understand what shapes their ministry philosophies and how they tried to “practice what they preach.” We also want to hint toward the similarities and differences between their two respective philosophies. This only has to be a hint as we will explore that further in part 2. Note:This is only the video of Day 1 of the event. If you’d like to take a course on this topic, you can find that here.
