How a Kingdom Perspective Has Affected My Life's Work

Carolyn Klaus, MD

Room 6

In this session, Dr. Carolyn Klaus will describe how the gospel of the kingdom of God has gradually impacted the trajectory of her life from wanna-be medical missionary at an early age, to becoming an ordinary doctor, to being part of a team that founded Esperanza Health Center in Philadelphia, to working as an AIDS educator and community developer in Horn of Africa. She will share how that foundation transformed her and those she worked with, and how her understanding of the kingdom has shaped the systems within which she has worked.
