Ministry Description

The focus of our ministry has been to reach the “river people” who live along the Amazon River. There are over 33,000 communities without access to the Gospel. Our strategy is to evangelize and disciple the youth from the urban centers of Brazil, then train them to become pioneering missionaries in our four-year missionary training institute, and then help coordinate our graduates, in conjunction with their home churches, as they plant new churches in the river communities. We reach about 10,000 young people each year with our camps, public school, Christian school and Bible clubs ministries. We have 85 full-time students in our institute. We also train about 200 leaders in our weekend leadership training classes. Our missionaries are currently planting churches in about 100 different communities through the boat ministry.
