why serve here

Brazil is a high-spirited country full of energy, passion and opportunity. Unfortunately, it also has lots of suffering.

The country has been hit hard by the pandemic, and this has had a big impact on young people’s mental health. Almost half of Brazilian teenagers reported suffering from constant or near-constant anxiety since the beginning of the pandemic. In the last decade, suicide has risen by approximately 35% for 10-19 year olds.

Social and economic disparities leave a large part of the population without access to high-quality education or healthcare, opening many doors for mission work.

Although Brazil has a strong Christian heritage, the gospel is often mis-represented and mis-told. On the other hand, young people, in particular, are thirsty to discover truth and purpose in life.

Brazil needs missionaries like you who are driven by love and compassion to share the truth of the Gospel with young people and to be positive influences in schools, churches and communities.

If you choose to serve in Brazil, you will have the opportunity to deeply impact the lives of young people in various contexts. You will be welcomed into a vibrant, festive and loving community and you will be challenged to grow and develop in your walk with Jesus and with others.

Come join us! Brazil is waiting for you!
