Derrick Olivares has a passion to reach the next generation for Christ. As a teenager, God called Derrick into ministry and began to prepare his heart for reaching the lost and bringing the hope of Jesus Christ to young people. At the age of 14, Derrick spent his summers serving with AGORA Ministries as a part of their Street Camps and block parties. Even as a young leader in youth ministry, AGORA held a special place in Derrick’s heart. After serving 10 years in youth ministry throughout the city of San Antonio, Derrick and his Wife Evelyn are excited to serve on staff with AGORA, expanding the vision of AGORA to the inner city of San Antonio.
“I am so excited to be a part of the Agora Family and it’s an honor for my family to serve the inner city. As we abide in Christ, we get to see the fruits of God’s Kingdom grow from seeds that were planted from the years of service of Agora.”
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
John 15:5 NIV
