Curtis and Linda
Our God Story
Having grown up in families where following Jesus was role-modelled, Linda and Curtis became Jesus followers at a young age. Their parents lived a life of active faith looking outwards locally and internationally. As young people, their horizons were broadened through being influenced by their parents’ actions. Through the PSALM program at Canadian Bible College, God developed in Curtis an international cross-cultural desire to serve. Together, they have served in various Latin American countries starting with an MK focus and moving to a greater focus in community leadership development towards community transformation. Currently they are in in a ministry called the Samuel House that focuses on facilitating the training/sending process of young professional Latinos that have been called to cross-cultural ministry with a least-reached people group focus.
With a vision to raise up a healthy and resilient generation of Latin American international workers, Curtis and Linda are partnering with Latino C&MA Global Missions to initiate a residential internship program with a focus of building relational bridges to live in international cross-cultural environments.
As this work has several international C&MA partners, the need for clarity in communication, the need for common priorities/goals and the need for strong working relationships are vital. Of equal importance is praying for the right Latino young men and women that have received a desire from God to serve cross-culturally in LRPG locations. Our focus is to provide an environment of living and modelling the how to’s of missional life in a cross cultural setting.
