Brazil Sub-region

Brazil is experiencing a time of transition. During the 10 years that Rev. Lázaro Aguiar Valvassoura served as a Brazil Sub Region director, a growth of 148% was achieved, reaching in 2015 a total of 149,000 Nazarenes serving God in the 26 states of the country.

We cannot fail to thank the national leadership. Beyond the work of Rev. Lázaro Aguiar Valvassoura, there was great influence from the four Field Strategy Coordinators and their Superintendents.

There is no doubt that the Lord will continue to work in and through this new stage in the life of the Brazilian church. Our leadership aims to work for the International, the South American and the National churches for the strengthening of Nazarene UnityCredibility and Identity, providing the necessary conditions for all of the pastors leading the more than 640 organized churches. The pastors are on the front lines of the battle and we work that they may receive tools and total support to bring continuity in the growth of the church. We hope that each church can develop the ten basic ministries that will strengthen our members and that each of them would live the Great Commission left to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.
