Elevate Conference

   “I had never worshipped in my own native language before!” That was one of the many exclamations reported by students who attended our Destino Winter Conference in Irvine, CA this month. Destino is a ministry of Cru working to help Latino students discover Jesus in the context of their own culture.

   One highlight for me was hearing from Joel Silva, who discovered Christ through Cru, launched ministries as a missionary with Destino and now serves as a local pastor at a bilingual church that continues to partner with us to bless college students. It was amazing to watch him encourage the local Hispanic churches who attended in order to learn how to reach the next generation. I had a great time connecting with students and pastors alike. This is Cru working at its best, walking with the bride of Christ, empowering for evangelism and discipleship in the area which we specialize.
