CROWN STEWARDSHIP CENTER
MEET YOUR CROWN PROJECT LEADER
Marcos Manríquez Espinoza serves as the headquarters Director of the National Youth Leadership Team With a Mission base in Santiago, Chile. Professionally he is a computer engineer and vocation missionary pastor. He and his wife lead vocational ministries, fostering community development from God’s perspective.
“Innovation and development for the glory of God is our challenge. I have been called by the Lord to mission mobilization for the adoption of unreached ethnic groups, to serve in the formation of missionaries with technical and trade skills who will develop competent communities in agriculture, education and health.”
“Uniting, connecting and cooperating in the body of Christ is my motto.” Marcos says. “At this time the Lord has given us the Word of Matthew 25; encouraging us to exercise good stewardship of the resources entrusted to us, and to be a response to the hungry and thirsty. “Because I was hungry, and you gave me food; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you picked me up; I was naked, and you covered me; sick, and you visited me; in jail, and you came to me. ” - Matthew 25:35-36
OUR RESPONSE TO THE NEED
The CSC partnership in Chile is under way! Anner Caceres, member of the YWAM mission team, traveled to Malawi to be trained as a trainer for Foundations for Farming and to teach Crown stewardship principles. He will be incorporating what he learned into the curriculum at YWAM so that the missionaries they train will teach wherever they are sent through Latin America and Africa. Crown’s Money Map has been translated to Spanish for maximum effectiveness in these training
