We*, along with our daughter Priscila, are serving in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The greater Sao Paulo area has a population of 24 million and is the largest city in South America. Our main focus is church planting. We have established and nationalized three churches on the Southside of Sao Paulo since our arrival in 1995 and are currently working on a fourth.
A second area of ministry focus is camping. In 2008, we purchased and began to develop a 12-acre site, still within the city limits of Sao Paulo. We have an annual camp season, as well as various camps throughout the year. An important facet of camp Betel is the unique outreach to the disabled. We promote four camps and retreats each year, specifically to reach and minister to the disabled. Last year, we turned over the camp administration to Brazilian nationals.
Besides church planting and camping, we are involved in seminary teaching, national church-planting support, sports ministry and hosting missions teams.
