August 27-September 3, 2017
Experience the vibrant commitment of our Brazilian partners to church planting as a key vehicle for sharing the Gospel in their communities. Hear from church visionaries, learn from practitioners and spend time exploring how God is at work in Brazil and what we can learn about it for the ministries of our own congregations. We will have the opportunity to attend a growing annual conference entitled “Resurgence: The legacy of the past, a mission in the present” which is organized by Brazilian Presbyterians and draws more than 1,500 participants from 40 different denominations. We will also become familiarized with SARA, a ministry developed in partnership with The Outreach Foundation which develops healthier pastoral leaders and congregations through mentoring. Associate Director Juan Sarmiento and Outreach's Portuguese-Language Ministries Coordinator José Carlos Pezini will co-lead this trip.
Estimated land cost is $1,480. Trip application deadline is May 25, 2017.
