Long before “Justice” was trending and “missional” was a word, Dr. John Perkins was boldly pioneering a new movement in the Christian culture. In 1976, he published Let Justice Roll Down, a manifesto and blueprint for the Church to begin to reclaim an ancient commitment to social justice. Crafted through his own experience growing up in Mississippi and forged through suffering and imprisonment, Let Justice Roll Down has been named by Christianity Today as one of the top 25 most important books of the 21st Century. Dr. Perkins has gone to become a trusted advisor to several Presidents, received 14 honorary doctorates form such universities as Wheaton College Gordon College, Belhaven University and co-founded the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA).
Perkins Pilgrimage, Institute on Wheels: Now in his later years, Dr. Perkins has decided to invest his energy into the lives of young leaders and pastors by inviting them to come to Jackson to spend time with him. The PJP allows a small group (8-20) to spend an intimate time with Dr. Perkins and his family. Those in attendance will be spending the mornings with Dr. Perkins and other practitioners and the afternoons visiting historic landmarks in Mississippi that helped shape the theology of Dr. Perkins. This will be a life-changing time for all who able to participate!
