Regarding these recent awards, Andre has stated: “My Campus Crusade staff goal for 50 years has been to present the Lord Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, in such an attractive manner that millions of people would be drawn to Him. Much of my effort this year has been helping others, worldwide, to do the same thing.”
