John Perkins

Many people have heard of the ministry of John Perkins through The Ave’s connections with Voice of Calvary Ministries (VOCM) in Jackson, MS. Every Spring Break, we send groups of students down to Jackson to work alongside of the year-round staff of VOCM to demolish and rehab homes in the neighborhoods of West Jackson.

Christianity Today recently provided a helpful look at the life of ‘Grandpa John’ who has influenced a great number of evangelicals, including the likes of Shane Claiborne, to put their faith into action, specifically in relation to social issues of our times.

You can read the article in CT here. You may also want to read Perkins’ autobiography, Let Justice Roll Down, which features a new introduction by Shane Claiborne in a reissued edition.
