Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world with over 190 million people and covering some 3.3 million square miles. Rio de Janeiro alone has more than six million people. Covenant missionaries are involved in church planting, evangelism, and outreach. They meet with a core group every week to worship God, fellowship, pray, and to seek ways to continue serving the Lord in Rio de Janeiro. Please pray for the sustainability of the new congregation and for its diverse ministries.
Mission ministry began in Brazil in 2007. Our missionaries were invited to partner with a group of Brazilian Christians who asked the Covenant to work with and among them. This ministry would focus on compassionate service to those in need in Rio de Janeiro. Outreach, service, and evangelism have moved forward and have been enriched by ministry among people in the arts and music, as well as sports and English as a Second Language (ESL).
