The Pentecostal Worker is the online publication of Joshua Dorman and Dave Mowers, two seminarians formed in the classical Pentecostal movement and informed by larger Christian tradition. The Pentecostal Worker is intentionally evocative of the title of the famous Dorothy Day publication The Catholic Worker. As The Catholic Worker encouraged Catholics to practice hospitality towards those marginalized by mainstream society, and to practice justice on their behalf.
Joshua C. Dorman is an MDiv student at Candler School of Theology at Emory University. At present, his interests are primarily focused in metaphysics and phenomenology; the thought of Jean-Luc Marion; and rethinking the notions of desire, gift, relationality, and alterity.
Dave Mowers is Coordinator for Prior Learning in the College of Adult and Professional Studies/Graduate School at Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota. His scholarly interests include the role of doctrine in sustaining the practices of Christian communities, particularly those of a pietist, Wesleyan or Pentecostal bent. He also enjoys novels, poetry, short essays, and quality sports writing. He is presently finishing a Master of Arts degree in Theological Studies at Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota.
