This week we will hear from Professor Jesse Sudirgo, Assistant Professor of Contextual Ministry at the Seminary at Tyndale University. In his message, Jesse, using Matthew 16:25 as his text, reminds us of Jesus’ call to and on us and of God’s fruitful abundance in the face of a culture that broadcasts scarcity. The message is equal parts inspiring and prophetic.
Jesse Sudirgo is the Director of the Masters of Divinity Church in the City (In-Ministry) Program and Assistant Professor of Contextual Ministry at the Seminary.

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.
