Every fourth Sunday of the month, we take time in our service to hear and reflect on the work of God through our Knox-supported missionaries. This month, we were privileged to hear of God’s work through the ministry of Carluci Dos Santos.
Carluci currently serves as the Global Missionary Ambassador for Latin America Mission (LAM), where he previously served as the Executive Director. Carluci is passionate about leadership development, biblical expository preaching, and theological education both in Latin America and in Canada. His education includes a PhD in Old Testament from St. Michael’s/Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto (2011) as well as degrees from Knox College, Regent College, and the University of British Columbia. He teaches at the Ottawa Theological College and is a guest lecturer at Tyndale Seminary and Wycliffe College in Toronto. He is a board member of and Old Testament teacher at the Instituto de Formacion Ministerial, a ministry leadership institute for Spanish-speakers in Toronto.
Carluci and his family worshiped at Knox for many years. He served as an elder here before pursuing ordination with the PCC. He is now the minister at Celebration Presbyterian Church (Toronto), a church in north Toronto that connects with the Latin American diaspora. He lives in the city with wife, Christina. They are proud parents of 3 grown daughters.
