Santiago is a vibrant city with a population of over five and a half million and an average age of just 30. The city centre in particular has a vast young population, with many thousands of people in higher education as well as workers and families, and a further two million people commuting in for work each day. It is an exciting place to live but there is an urgent need for more evangelical Christian witness.
Cristóbal Cerón 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 - 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 Iglesia Santiago Centre Cristóbal is in charge of National Gimnasio (a ministry training programme), teaches homiletics at the local Anglican Bible College, and leads Mouchile, a national evangelistic mission seeking to share the gospel with young people throughout Chile.
Cristóbal is married to Alejandra, and has three children: Belén, Jacinta and Amanda.

Dear gospel partners,
We greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! It has been a long time since I wrote you our latest newsletter.
God has keeping us joyful throughout the year. At times there has been a lot of work but I think God has allowed us to handle it relying on him and without losing perspective.
Belén, Jacinta and Amanda
