Dan and Deanne Gerard are working with Campus Crusade for Christ in TEXAS. Cru leadership has asked us to launch and lead a ministry called “Destino” (Destiny) which is focused on Latino college students.
When we think of this next step in ministry we get excited as we dream about what the Lord is going to do as He raises up a generation of Christian Latino leaders for this country and the world. Not only are Latinos currently responding to the Gospel message at twice the rate of any other group but Latino college students will be shaping the future of this country and the world. Imagine the impact if those students are Christ-followers!
