Talking with Craig Stewart about how local churches can serve their local communities and partner with other groups to see community transformation.

Craig Stewart yearns to see society in general and the church in particular, embrace the pursuit of justice in the world as an integral part of its discipleship and communal life. He began his career with a brief stint as a fresh water ecologist before moving into education and a non profit career. He is currently the Executive Director of The Warehouse, a justice and mercy ministry in Cape Town, South Africa, that is working to inspire, equip and connect churches to participate effectively in transformational development.

Craig is the National Coordinator for Micah Challenge South Africa and is also a member of the Western Cape Religious Leaders Forum (WCRLF) representing the Archbishop of Cape Town, Thabo Makgoba. He is a member of the Board of Directors for HOPE Africa and an adjunct staff member of Eastern University in the USA. Craig is married to Liesl and they have 3 children.

Recently I visited Vanderbilt University Divinity School, and spoke with Professor Fernando Segovia about how Christians from the Global South and Global North can enter critical and life-giving conversations.

Fernando Segovia was the first President of the Society of Biblical Literature from the Global South. He travels worldwide teaching on non-Western Christian theologies, and especially theologies from Latin American and the Caribbean. He also unpacks the shape of minority Christian theologies in the West, and especially from Hispanic-Americans. As a cultural critic, his interests include postcolonial and minority and Diaspora studies. Professor Segovia has served on the editorial boards of many academic journals. He lectures internationally. And he’s also a past president of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians in the United States.

Speaking with Charlie Abou Saada about the faith of Palestinian Christians. They are "living stones" in the Holy Land who witness to Jesus Christ.

Christianity dates as far back as the 7th century in China. Pew Research says there are 67 million Christians in China, or 5% of the population. Much has been written on the astonishing growth and size of the Chinese church. In this filmed interview, David L Ro and I discuss the astonishing ways God is working in and through Chinese churches today.

Joseph Nyamutera's family were caught up in the Rwandan genocide. They helped targeted people cross the border into the Congo and survive. After the genocide, he spent 2 years in a refugee camp, where he lost his father, first son, sister, and many friends, to violence and disease. Joseph Nyamutera took his pain to the cross of Jesus, where he found healing, and freedom to relate to the Tutsi as fellow Rwandans.

For the last 2 decades, Joseph Nyamutera has helped others find forgiveness, peace, healing, and reconciliation through Christ. His dream is to see the Rwandan tragedy redeemed, as Rwanda becomes a model of successful conflict transformation.

Here I interview him about his remarkable story and ministry of reconciliation.

Recent political events have exposed much misunderstanding and disunity in the church. It's ok to differ, but disunity and division is another thing. Today I uploaded a new interview, this time with Norberto Saracco on how the Spirit creates visible unity in the church.

Norberto Saracco has been instrumental in encouraging unity across churches and denominations in Latin America, and he's convinced that only the Spirit can create visible unity in the church. In the midst of the fear and repression and death that accompanied the Argentinian military coup of 1976—including the death of between 10,000 and 30,000 people—Norberto Sirocco helped steer the Argentinian and Latin American churches toward unity and healing and mission. He was instrumental in shaping unified theological education and pastoral training in Argentina—the only kind of ministry training that would work in a country under military and political repression. From 76 pastors taking courses over weekends in 1978, a decade later an average of 1800 students were registering every year.

In a world increasingly full of division, animosity, and conflict, the church needs to embrace the ministry of reconciliation and the blessedness of peacemaking.

In this interview, Professor Peter Kuzmic helps us understand how to do this.

Peter Kuzmic is the Eva B. and Paul E. Toms Distinguished Professor of World Missions and European Studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. A native of Slovenia and a citizen of Croatia, he is one of the foremost evangelical scholars in Eastern Europe and is considered an authority on the subject of a Christian response to Marxism and on Christian ministry in post-Communist contexts. In this filmed interview, I talk with him about Christian approaches to peacemaking and reconciliation. Peter Kuzmic was influential in bringing about the Dayton Peace Awards and served as an advisor on reconciliation for national leaders in the Balkans, the United Nations and the U.S. State Department. He is an honorary member of the Croatian Helsinki Committee for Human Rights and has received the Presidential Award of Croatia. He also received the Helsinki Award for Human Rights and Religious Liberty in recognition of his work in promoting interreligious dialogue.
