Paul A. Hoffman, B.A. (Gordon College), M.Div. (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) 'A Critical Assessment of the Practical Theology of the "Urban Missional Engagement" with Particular Reference to Redeemer Presbyterian Church'
Paul began his doctoral research in 2012. His thesis will critically examine the urban missiology of Timothy Keller and Redeemer Presbyterian Church employing a new methodology called 'Theological Action Research.' The core of this framework is the 'Four Voices of Theology', which explores the gap between one's espoused (articulated) theology and one's operant (praxis) theology. Paul is the Senior Pastor of Evangelical Friends Church of Newport, RI.
