From its earliest decades, Perkins School of Theology has been committed to formal and informal theological reflection with persons whose faith influences and shapes the good of both the church and the world. Perkins’ mission to prepare women and men for faithful leadership in Christian ministry extends not only to students and ministry professionals but also to laypersons and the larger community. In support of this, Perkins hosts a number of Faith and Business Luncheons per year as well as an annual Public Life Personal Faith Scholarship Luncheon for critical reflection on the intersection of public life and personal faith.
We are pleased to welcome Jorge Baldor (’93). Baldor has founded and helped support several organizations aimed at empowering others and developing future leaders, particularly within the local and international Latino community. In 2015, Baldor co-founded the Latino Center for Leadership Development. A Dallas Regional Chamber board member, Baldor was also named a finalist for the Dallas Morning News’ Texan of the Year in 2018. He was most recently awarded the OHTLI Award by the Mexican government, which is the highest recognition given by the government to an individual living outside of Mexico for elevating Mexican culture abroad.
The luncheon is scheduled on January 23, 2023, at the Prothro Great Hall on the SMU campus. The luncheon begins at 11:45 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m.
