MPBC is honored to welcome Reverend Dr. Miguel De La
Torre as our 2017 J21 Scholar. Dr. De La Torre was born
in Cuba and came to the United States with his family
when he was six months old. Officially deemed an “illegal
immigrant” by the United States for some time, Miguel
eventually found his way to Miami where he began a
career in real estate. Over the course of several years, he
grew his business, earned a Masters Degree in Public
Administration, and ran for political office. After
becoming a “born-again Christian,” he pursued theological education at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He continued his studies at Temple University, where he earned his Ph.D. in Social Ethics.

He has held teaching positions at Hope College in Holland, MI and Iliff School of Theology in Denver, CO, where he currently teaches Social Ethics and Latinx Studies. Dr. De La Torre is an internationally known author and speaker focusing on ethical issues related to #Latinx religiosity, #LGBTQ civil rights, and immigration rights.

His most recent publications include:

• The Immigration Crisis: Toward an Ethics of Place (2016)
• Liberating Sexuality: Justice Between the Sheets (2016)
• The Politics of Jesus (2015)
• Doing Christian Ethics from the Margins (2014)
