About Matias

I was raised in a Christian home, my parents always instructed me every day to love God more, but my life as a "religious" and slave of sin would not allow me to approach God until I was 13 years old. I realized what Jesus had done for me on the cross, that His grace reached me and called me by name, to surrender before the Creator, and to serve Him.
As a teenager, I went through some difficult times where I questioned my faith, and where the gospel became a monotonous routine in my life, but the grace of God always sustained me. After school I took a trip to France for three months.
This time was essential to remember all that God had done for me, and the only thing that I could give to Him for what He has done for me, is to serve Him full-time, and for that I needed preparation.
So I decided to study at the Biblical Seminary of the Word of Life Brazil.
In these three years of study, God has given me the privilege of serving in the Baptist Church of Morumbi (São Paulo), where I have worked with children, adolescents and young people especially in the areas of worship, discipleship and teaching of the Word.
Portugal is part of the cradle of Western theology, however, today southern Europe represents one of the least evangelized regions in the world.
Seeing what the missionaries of the "Word of Life Portugal" have done to change this reality, I have a desire to join this team and together serve, so that more young people can be reached through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

"But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
