Eraldo’s areas of interest are the theology of religions, missional theology, transdisciplinary studies, formation and training of missionaries, and discipleship. His dissertation deals with the outsider’s status in a canonical perspective as an interested advocate for justice grounded in God’s fairness. His scholarship aims to provide biblical and missiological tools to uphold justice based on the history of oppression within, or exclusion from, a community, thus restoring the image of God. Eraldo is an ordained minister with ten years of experience in his home country, Brazil, and currently, as a coordinator, works on a project to equip lay people, developed in partnership with professors from the Institute of World Mission of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Eraldo is responsible for English, Spanish, and Portuguese-speaking countries.
