The Rev. Dr. Eddie Cruz’s talent for relationship building is evident in his roles as associate director of both American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ Mission Advancement and Passionary Movement.
“No matter how successful you think you are, if you are not successful in relationships, you aren’t successful,” he says.
Since accepting Jesus Christ in 1972, Cruz has focused on following Christ’s lead in making a difference in communities and lives.
“My goal is to cultivate relationships that enhances the mission and design a comprehensive strategy that encourages people to engage their talents and passions for the glory of Jesus Christ. As I read the gospel, Jesus Christ was invested in people. He was always with people doing ministry.”
