Pastor. Missionary. Activist. Organizer. Mother. Professor. The Rev. Dr. Alexia Salvatierra has done it all.
That’s fitting for someone who’s dedicated her life’s work to misión integral, or holistic mission. She’s passionate about being on mission with Jesus in a way “that doesn't separate the body and soul but loves the whole person in the whole family in the whole community in the whole neighborhood in the whole society.” Dr. Salvatierra teaches aspiring scholars and church leaders about putting holistic mission into practice as a faculty member of the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Seminary.
Alison Freeman interviews Dr. Salvatierra and finds out how she came to faith after an atheist upbringing, how she sustains her life with God amidst the demands of a busy ministry, and why a dark view of human nature actually helps sustain us in the work of justice.
