Cristóbal planted an Anglican church in Santiago city centre in 2011 with a congregation of 30. Since then it has grown and grown, with many people attending mid-week groups, Sunday meetings and evangelistic activities. The church - Iglesia Santiago Apóstol (ISA) - is passionate about the gospel and reaching students, young professionals and others for Christ.
Brought up in Santiago, Cristóbal became a Christian as a student. He is a natural evangelist with a huge passion for serving God. A former Crosslinks BEST Study Partner (George Whitefield College 2004-7), he loves seeing young people taught the gospel and then equipped for ministry. Alongside leading ISA, Cristóbal is in charge of National Gimnasio (a ministry training programme) and leads Mouchile, a national evangelistic mission to young people. In March 2018, Cristóbal became Rector of CEP - the Anglican training college in Santiago. He now works part-time for both ISA and CEP.
Cristóbal is married to Alejandra and has three children: Belén, Jacinta and Amanda.
In January 2019 Cristóbal led a team from Iglesia Santiago Apóstol to visit a missionary in India who trains pastors and church planters.
It is our hope that you are in peace with the Lord and his mission as you read this newsletter. In this newsletter, we long to tell you what the Lord has been doing in us in this last year: we have a lot to be thankful for.
Our beautiful daughters keep growing and now they are going into the hard season of adolescence. Every day we are faced with decision making, granting of permissions, knowing how to answer difficult questions and trusting in God’s care over their lives. All of you who have gone through this season know what we are talking about. It is our hope that every one of us longs to love and know more about the Lord personally and as a family. Relational, educational, working and social challenges are ahead, but in midst of all this we want to be at Jesus’ feet as a family, constantly enjoying his love.
