Derek Gard

International Sales Manager | Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company

As a youth, Derek avoided church to the best of his ability. But the promise of a day at the beach caused him to relent. After all, there aren’t many beaches in central Illinois. In 2001, he committed to a short-term mission trip. During that trip, God infused Derek’s heart with a passion for cross-cultural ministry. A short while later, Derek and his family chose to serve with GO Ministries. During the next five years, Derek wore a number of different hats. He served as a coach and a hub director, facilitated mission trips and did fundraising. Today, Derek uses his knowledge to help mission-sending organizations build custom risk management programs through Brotherhood Mutual to protect themselves and their travelers.
