Please join us on Sunday, Feb 11th for a special day as we award civil rights leader Dr. John Perkins the Second Baptist Brooks Hays Award.  We will hear from him about the work he has done towards racial reconciliation and about how each of us can play our part in this kingdom work.

John M. Perkins was born into Mississippi poverty, the son of a sharecropper. He fled to California when he was 17 after his older brother was murdered by a town marshal.  Although Dr. Perkins vowed never to return, in 1960 after he accepted Christ, he returned to his boyhood home to share the gospel of Christ with those still living in the region. 

Today, Dr. Perkins is president of the John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation of Jackson, Mississippi. He is one of the leading evangelical voices to come out of the American civil rights movement. He is also an internationally known author, speaker, and teacher on issues of racial reconciliation and Christian community development.

Despite dropping out of school in the third grade, Dr. Perkins is an author and international speaker and teacher on issues of racial reconciliation, leadership, and community development. For his tireless work, he received honorary doctorates from Wheaton College, Gordon College, Huntington College, Geneva College, Spring Arbor University, North Park College, and Belhaven College.  He is the author of nine books including A Quiet Revolution, Let Justice Roll DownWith Justice For AllBeyond CharityHe’s My BrotherResurrecting Hope, and A Time to Heal.
