Eight years ago, Regina and I began ministry together in Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil. I left Chicago, IL with all my earthly possessions in seven suitcases trusting in God calling me to serve Him as a missionary in Brazil. Regina, already working planting churches in Brazil, understands the needs and people..

 

Over the last 8 years, we have focused on strengthening by addition and revitalization church-planting. We have walked side-by-side with local pastors. Our new focus is to lead existing churches to strengthen and reproduce themselves in new church plants. In 2018, we have started putting this model to work in Campinas, Brazil.
