Eu Amo Brasil!
I started doing ministry in Brazil in 2001. Since then I have had the privilege of traveling all over this amazing country and partnering with wonderful Pastors, Churches and Ministries. My Portuguese has improved over the years and I often lead worship in the language and, though I’m not fluent, am able to carry on conversations without too much trouble. The passion and affection of Brazilian people is genuine and endearing. The past years have been difficult for this great nation but I believe there is a revival spirit in the Body of Christ in Brazil that will touch the world. I have been blessed to play a key role in helping dear friends plant a church in the south of the country. You can read about my primary relationships and connections by checking the tabs below.
São Bento Do Sul – O Refugio
Located in the southern state of Santa Catarina, São Bento is a city of about 80,000. My dear friends Jean and Giuliana Gadotti planted the Brazil Campus of The Refuge called ‘O Refugio’ in 2011 in this city after moving back to Brazil in 2010. I have the privilege of connecting with the church there regularly and traveling to the Church at least once a year.

Recife – Obreiros De Cristo
While still living in Orange Beach, Alabama I became friends with Marcello Aquino who has been my close friend ever since. He connected to me to his home town of Recife in the northeast corner of Brazil and to his home church. Since then I have become connected with Pastors Doriel and Liani at Obreiros De Cristo in Recife, a dynamic church making a significant impact in their region. I have been privileged to minister there on several occasions and my wife Tamsey has spoken at one of their Women’s Conferences.

Brasilia – Communidade Adoradores
I have been invited this year to teach and lead worship for a Conference in Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil. Pastor Tiago Rocha and his church Communidade De Adoroadores Internacional are hosting the conference and I’m honored to be partnered with them. I look forward to connecting with and serving Pastor Tiago and his congregation. To learn more about this church and this event clink the link here. www.CIAChurch.com.br
