Your Host

Martin Rodriguez is an assistant professor in the Department of Practical Theology at Azusa Pacific University. He holds a PhD in intercultural studies from Fuller Theological. His dissertation focuses on missiology at the intersection of postcolonial hybridity theory and late-modern leadership theory. Since 2011, he has served as Family Life Minister at the Hollywood Church of Christ (Hollywood, CA, USA). Before this, he served for five years as a missionary in China where he mentored emerging leaders and partnered with Chinese leaders to plant three churches. Martin also holds an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary and a degree in Religion and International Studies from Pepperdine University (Malibu, CA, USA). He is also a content editor of Missio Dei: A Journal of Missional Theology and Praxis and a member of the missiology.com team.

Your Producer

Greg McKinzie is a PhD candidate in theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, writing on missional hermeneutics at the intersection of constructive theology, theological interpretation of Scripture, and missiology. He is also an adjunct professor of Bible and ministry at Lipscomb University (Nashville, TN), the executive editor of Missio Dei: A Journal of Missional Theology and Praxis, and the lead administrator of missiology.com. From 2008 to 2015, he served in Arequipa, Peru, as a partner in holistic evangelism with Team Arequipa and The Christian Urban Development Association. Greg holds an MDiv from Harding School of Theology (Memphis, TN, USA) and a BA in missions from Harding University (Searcy, AR, USA). He should probably be working on his dissertation right now.
