The 21st Century MVP: Bridge Personalities Who Happily Span Cultures
Link: The 21st Century MVP: Bridge Personalities Who Happily Span Cultures
Today’s Latino college students are bridge peoples. They identify with two cultures equally well, Latino and Mainstream American culture. In the 21st Century it is these bi-cultural bridge people who will prove to be some of the most important on the planet.
One of the best things you can do when working with Destino is to disciple students in such a way that they grow to wholeness in their ethnic identity. We use “Being Latino in Christ” to help students grow in their ability to identify with their ethnic identity as well as their assimilation to mainstream culture. It is precisely their ability to do both (to be a new type of “third culture kid”) that positions them in a place of prominence in the 21st Century.
Bridge people will change the world tomorrow. What are you doing to reach them today?
