North American domestic missions are now situated in a complex landscape of changing faith, ethnic diversity, and racial unrest. But most missiological approaches continue under colonialist assumptions and lack the cultural competency to navigate new realities. Missiologist Daniel White Hodge explores the contours of post-civil rights contexts and focuses on Hip Hop theology as a framework for radical engagement of emerging adult populations. He critiques the impaired missiology of imperialist and white supremacist approaches to modern urban and short-term missions. With keen cultural exegesis of the wild, he explores the contours of a more contextualized Hip Hop Jesus. Reexamining the importance of race and ethnicity in mission, Hodge offers theological space for protest and social disruption and suggests conceptual models for domestic missions within a growing multiethnic demographic. Grounded in Hip Hop studies and youth ministry, Hodge constructs a hybridity of lived missiology where dissent and disruption open new possibilities for Christian faith in the twenty-first century.
Daniel White Hodge (Ph.D., Fuller Graduate School of Intercultural Studies) is adjunct professor in the global studies, sociology and TESOL department at Azusa Pacific University and in the sociology department at Citrus College.
Daniel is a national trainer for the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) and the Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI), and he teaches classes around the world on topics like culture, personality and the self; hip-hop 101; and intercultural communication.
As an ordained minister, Daniel's passion and heart is for young people, particularly those from the urban community involved with hip-hop culture, and thus his publication The Soul of Hip Hop: Rims, Timbs and a Cultural Theology.
