Celebrating the life, ministry of Alberto Croce
Alberto Croce, 74, of Córdoba, Argentina, passed away 19 February 2020. He was the pastor at Villa del Dique Church of the Nazarene and a former district superintendent.
Croce arrived in Córdoba on 21 March 2003 with his wife, Mabel de Croce, to start a new district in Argentina, the Mediterraneo District, and serve as pastor of the Church of the Nazarene in Embalce.
When he took charge of the district, it had three churches: Embalce, San Roque, and Rio Segundo. When he turned the district over, it had nine churches: Embalce, San Roque, Rio Segundo, Rio Cuarto, Huerta Grande, Córdoba Capital, Valle Hermoso, Villa del Dique, and Villa Dolores, and a church plant in the City of Oliva.
He served as pastor of the Church of the Nazarene in Embalce until 2018; that same year, he took over the Church of the Nazarene in Villa del Dique, where he continued serving as pastor until the Lord called him to His presence.
In January 2019, he left the superintendency of the Mediterraneo District. On that same day, his wife took over the superintendency where she continues serving to this day.
Apart from serving as superintendent for the Argentina Mediterraneo District, he also served as superintendent for the Argentina Noreste District from 2012 to 2017 and was a professor for decentralized education and online courses for the South Cone Nazarene Theological Seminary.
Those who knew Alberto believe he left a legacy that inspires and motivates the church of the Lord to continue fulfilling the mission of making Christlike disciples among all peoples.
