Working with our missionary partners is important for sharing the love of Jesus to the world.
Our Missionary Partners
Ben & Jucelia are currently working in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They are involved in implanting a child evangelism ministry to at-risk children in the slums. Ben & Jucelia are coming alongside a new missionary to help implant this ministry. Their purpose is to partner with local Churches/Christian groups to challenge, train, encourage and implement a weekly outreach/visitation program in a slum/poor neighborhood within their immediate proximity. They will accompany each group they partner with until they feel that their assistance is no longer needed. Thus allowing them to multiply their reach to those most neglected.
