MISSIONARY ORIENTATION CONFERENCE, BRAZIL
(NCSA Brazil) A Missionary Orientation Conference was held November 15-17 in the city of Campinas in the central area of Brazil. The conference brought together 30 missionary candidates from the Southeast region and from the Amazon, the North Rio Grande, Paraná, and Santa Catarina areas of the country.
It was a special time with a variety ministries, challenges, tests, and activities. In 2019, four such conferences are scheduled in different parts of Brazil. For the first time the Church of the Nazarene in Brazil established a process of training, formation, and sending missionaries through the coordination of Global Missions in the South America Region and the Global Ministries Center in the United States.
As part of this process to develop missions the Center of Missionary Formation was created to begin in January of 2019 and it is hoped that the next year more Brazilian missionaries will be sent to the field with the help of local churches and districts. The challenge is to train with excellence the most candidates possible for a vocation in missions, so the Church of the Nazarene can continue to make Christ-like disciples in the nations.
