Credentials:  BA, Centro Universitário Adventista de São Paulo, Brazil / MA, Andrews University / PhD, Andrews University (present)

Denomination: Seventh-Day Adventist

Specific Field: Missiology


Eraldo’s areas of interest are the theology of religions, missional theology, transdisciplinary studies, the formation and training of missionaries, and discipleship. His dissertation deals with the outsider’s status from 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. Currently, he works as a coordinator on a project developed in partnership with professors from the Institute of World Mission of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists to equip lay people. Eraldo is responsible for English, Spanish, and Portuguese speaking countries.
