Mission Vision And Plan
|Ministering in Brazil|
|BRAZIL — The Church of God has been busy establishing ministries across Brazil in an effort to meet the spiritual, emotional, educational, and physical needs of the people. Lucia and I have been called by God to become involved in the work taking place in Brazil, and desire your support financially and prayerfully.
Brazil is a country of vast diversity that has plunged into the 21st century without the spiritual direction needed to anchor its people. The Gospel is being preached in Brazil by various Christian denominations, but the need is so great that those currently preaching the Gospel and engaged in Christian benevolence cannot fill the need. The Church of God has been busy establishing ministries across Brazil in an effort to meet the spiritual, emotional, educational, and physical needs of the people.
Lucia and I have been called by God to become involved in the work taking place in Brazil, and desire your support financially and prayerfully. Lucia is originally from Brazil and came to know the Lord through the ministry of missionaries, and believes that God now wants her to return and share the Gospel with others, so that they can experience life-changing salvation. I have built a career working with substance abuse and dependency in the criminal justice system, and am a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor who believes that God wants me to use my skills with those in Brazil who are enslaved by sin and bound by addiction. I also believe that God is directing me to educate other Christians to work with addicts and their families, in order to bring deliverance.
Lucia has worked extensively in Children’s Church for many years and has served as church pianist, as well as, currently serving with me as the Leaders of the Young at Heart Senior Adult ministry at the Fairfield Church of God. I am an ordained minister in the Church of God and have considerable experience preaching. I have the gift of teaching and have always taught either Sunday School or on Wednesday evenings. I also have a counseling ministry at Fairfield and work with individuals and families.
Please pray for our ministry opportunities, and for God’s hand upon our lives.
Tim and Lucia Kennedy
