Ministry Highlights

We served in Igreja Batista Vida Nova (New Life Baptist Church) in Jabaquara (southern region of the city of São Paulo) as church planting assistants from July 2015-August 2017. We worked alongside Pastor Wilson Rocha and ABWE missionaries Joe & Meta Arthur. We served in the following ministries:


Preaching & Teaching
God gave us many opportunities to serve at Vida Nova church through Odir's preaching, preparing devotionals for the teens, teaching the baptism adult Sunday School class, and Cynthia's teaching ministry to children.

Youth Ministries
We love youth ministry and see how teens and young adults are at a crucial point in their lives where they are seeking for answers and seeking truth. They will make some of the most critical decisions in their lives during the ages of 18 - 22 that will determine if they want to serve God or not.

We had weekly small group meeting where we graciously saw God grow from our group of 3 teens to 22 teens! Most of these were new or young believers so we worked with them on basic bible knowledge through discipleship. 


Camping Ministries
We had the joys of hosting two different youth camps during the Carnival season (2016 and 2017). The first year the theme was Christ in Me (with an emphasis in a personal relationship with Christ) and the second year the theme was Light Unto my Friends (with an emphasis on Christian testimony). In both camps there were several decisions for salvation and decisions to rededicate their lives to Christ.
