Alan and Jennifer De Cerff serve with the Navigators and are based in New York City. Their ministry focus is reaching post-graduate international students at Columbia University. These students, some married and some single, are sent here by their governments for further study and once they return home will hold responsible positions in government and business.
In the summer of 2018 the De Cerffs are planning to live among these students in university accommodations at Columbia, making it easier to build trust and rapport with them and doing ministry in an imbedded way. Besides the focus on international students, Jennifer is pursuing a PhD at Columbia and Alan serves as national associate director for the U.S. Navigators, reaching people groups in the U.S.
