We were delighted to welcome Jesse Sudirgo as our guest preacher on May 7. Jesse has been partnering with Yonge Street Mission to assist Karen Isaacs and the Justice Working Group in their work of discerning Little Trinity’s call to justice ministry; as we seek to love God, grow together, and serve our world in the place God has planted us. Jesse explored the theology of kingdom justice with us, both in the sermon and in the Justice Workshops. Here are the links to those workshops and videos:
Jesse is the Assistant Professor of Contextual Ministry at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto. He has a diverse breadth of experience in multiple disciplines of ministry in both the church and non-profit sectors. He is the former Director of Street-Involved Services at the YSM Evergreen Centre and continues to consult with churches in their engagement with poverty in the city. He brings to his work a conviction for interdisciplinary theological reflection that considers those most marginalized in society. His background in church planting in Boston Massachusetts has shaped his interests in missional lay leadership, community development, and urban poverty.
