President Emeritus

Based in Argentina

René Padilla has a PhD in New Testament from the University of Manchester, England. He was a member of the staff of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students for Latin America from 1959 to 1982, General Secretary of the Latin American Theological Fellowship from 1983 to 1992 and founding member of the Kairos Community of Buenos Aires from 1976 to the present.

René is currently Emeritus President of the Kairos Foundation and Director of Kairos Books. The Kairos Foundation is a Christian service agency whose raison d'etre is to facilitate the reflection on and the practice of integral mission on the part of local churches. It has a retreat centre (the Kairos Center) and three departments: theological education (CETI), publications (Kairos Books), and practical church ministries (Ministerios Comunitarios). It also promotes Micah Challenge in Argentina.

René writes... “The Micah Network is an encouraging sign of the present-day awakening of the social conscience among evangelicals around the world. Its major strength is that it provides a unique space for evangelical Christians from all over the world to grow together in their understanding and practice of Christian discipleship in a global world affected by consumerism, injustice, and oppression. My hope is that it will find ways to strengthen practical partnership across national borders in order to counteract the negative aspects of globalization and to globilize human solidarity.
