Perkins returns to campus

Dr. John Perkins was the featured speaker at this year's Pastor's Day and at a special chapel service on Tuesday, Sept. 9. He spoke on the topic "Who is the Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven," based on Matthew 18:1-10. Perkins rose above the difficulties of poverty, racial discrimination and lack of formal education to found several ministries to the disadvantaged, author nine books, be awarded seven honorary doctorates, and become an international author, speaker and lecturer. He is the founder of Mendenhall Ministries Mendenhall, Mississippi; Voice of Calvary Ministries, Jackson, Mississippi; Harambee Christian Family Center and Preparatory School, Pasadena, California; the Christian Community Development Association, and the John Perkins Foundation for Reconciliation and Development.
