Gabriel Salguero at Drew this week

What's a self-described Latino-Evangelical-Pentecostal-Progressive Preacher doing at Drew Theological School this week?


Preaching, Prophesying, Teaching and Discussing the "Rise of Latino-Evangelical-Pentecostal-Progressive Christianity in America" focused on shalom and social justice for the common good.

Gabriel, and his wife, Jeanette, are co-pastors of the Lamb's Church of the Nazarene (where I once served as associate pastor and still claim my charter membership). 
  
The original Lambs Church building is now a boutique hotel and restaurant in Times Square, but the church remnant relocated to lower Manhattan and became a vital multicultural, multilingual, multinational community of faith focused on what it means to love God, self and neighbor as a "global Christian." 


Rev. Salguero, in addition to serving as pastor of the Lamb's Church, is an internationally noted pastor in the Evangelical tradition.  He is Director of the Hispanic Leadership Program at Princeton Theological Seminary and an executive member of The Latino Leadership Circle.  He is a featured writer for Sojourners' God's Politics blog, guest columnist on El Diario/La Prensa, and contributing writer for the On Faith forum of the Washington Post.  Click on his article on immigration reform:
