Dr. Waldrop’s pioneering ministry in theological education has been instrumental in establishing alternative programs of ministerial formation throughout Central America, with a special emphasis upon contextual and holistic approaches to church growth and leadership development in situations of poverty, oppression, and violence. For eighteen years he and his wife, Janice, served as missionaries in Central America. They established Casa Shalom Home for Children in Guatemala, a holistic ministry of healing and hope for victimized children, where they lived with their own four children for eight years. Dr. Waldrop is also a member of several scholarly societies including the International Association for Mission Studies (IAMS), the American Society of Missiology, the Fraternidad Teologica Latinoamericana, and the Society for Pentecostal Studies. He has also contributed articles to the Church of God Evangel, The Pentecostal Minister, Pastoralia, and Vida Y Pensamiento. Dr. Waldrop has traveled widely, consulting with Church leaders, and teaching, leadership, and mission courses in a variety of seminaries and Bible colleges in Korea, Romania, Philippines, throughout Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. He is also a frequent speaker in regional mission conferences and in churches throughout the United States and Canada.
