Alberto La Rosa Rojas
Assistant Professor of Theology and Ethics at Western Theological Seminary
Alberto La Rosa Rojas was born and raised in the port city of Callao, Peru, where he learned to love soccer, salsa music, and Peruvian food. His experience as an immigrant informs and fuels his research which explores the meaning and importance of migration and home for the Christian life. His research addresses the challenges migrants face beyond the border as they seek to cultivate a flourishing common life with their non-immigrant neighbors.
Dr. La Rosa received his Th.D. in Theology and Ethics from Duke University (2022) with a dissertation titled, “God’s Journey Home: Toward a Theology of Migration and Home from the Americas.” He has taught courses in the United States, El Salvador, and Peru. He has also written a number of book reviews and book chapters, including “A Migrant at the Lord’s Table: A Reformed Theology of Home,” included in Reformed Public Theology: A Global Vision for Life in the World. Dr. La Rosa is a licensed candidate for ordination in the Reformed Church in America, Holland Classis.
