Being the largest country in South America, Brazil's evangelical church sends one-third of all Latin American missionaries into the worldwide harvest. TEAM’s vision for Brazil is to serve the national church in mobilizing, training, sending, and caring for its missionaries.

Brazilians are a very outgoing, friendly people who are passionate about many things, such as soccer, a good "churrasco" barbeque, but also about their relationship with Jesus! Their passion for our Savior, fueled with solid biblical, missiological and interpersonal training is why TEAM is in Brazil. We are sending these passionate Brazilian missionaries to the unreached around the world, and helping "wounded warriors" (those burnt out or 'hurt' in ministry) regain their zeal to serve the Lord.

Brazilians are loved around the world for their hospitality and their emphasis on family and community--this serves to their benefit and the Kingdom's advance in many regions of the world where North Americans often have a difficult time seeing eternal fruit. It is a great privilege to be a part of what God is doing through the Brazilian Church around the world, as they demonstrate these Christ-like qualities as they GO spread the gospel among the nations.
