Ministry Administration and Service
David Delgado is the national coordinator for Operation Christmas Child in Spain.
When did you trust Christ?
I became a Christian when I was 8-years-old at a Christian summer camp. We had the opportunity to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior publicly and I stepped forward accepting Jesus in my heart.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
I have had many moments in my life that have been important in my journey with God. When I was 14-years-old God called me to the ministry and since then my steps have been to do His will. When I was 22, my wife and I went to study at the seminary to prepare ourselves for what God had planned for our lives. Another moment that has made us depend on God like never before was when my wife was diagnosed with cancer. This diagnosis gave us a new perspective on everything we do in each area of our lives.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I would love to see what God is doing throughout Europe. I would love to learn from the different strategies and experiences that other people are having and receive tools so that the Kingdom of God may continue to advance.
What is your ministry?
I am the national coordinator of Operation Christmas Child. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. I lead the project in Spain, including our entire network of volunteers throughout the country. In the past year more than 600 churches of our country collaborated in our project. We mobilize 24 teams of around 10 people, who in turn mobilize hundreds of volunteers throughout the country. I am also becoming the pastor of a new church plant.
What are your past leadership roles?
I was a youth leader for six years. Later on, I become an assistant pastor.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
Personally, I would like to broaden my perspective and continue to learn and grow through what others and more experienced people can contribute in my life.
