Andrew Panaggio & Adriana Vilca
I (Andrew) serve as a Missional Scholar with UWM’s Theological Education Initiative. I’m currently working on my PhD in Old Testament at Wheaton College. Upon completion, we will be moving to Peru, where both Adriana and I grew up, to do theological education. The Peruvian evangelical church is growing, but there is a great need for trained ministry leaders and theological educators as most pastors have little or no theological education. Our vision is to see an environment in the Peruvian evangelical church where contextual theological reflection is central to the life of the church.
Adriana, for the time being, will be caring for four kids. Once they are all in school, she will be putting her training in the area of psychology to use for the benefit of the Peruvian church.
- That God would sustain our family (spiritually, relationally, etc) as we move through the PhD process.
- That God would open doors for theological education in Peru (there are currently zero accredited evangelical schools).
- That God would provide as we transition to Peru.
