Personal Testimony: I heard the gospel for the first time at the age of fifteen, when a friend invited me to a youth rally in São Paulo, in my native Brazil. Until that day, I had been under the impression I could earn my place in heaven by good works. During that sermon, God convinced me that I was sinner and fell short of His glory (Romans 3:23). I came to Jesus in repentance and faith. He saved me by his grace, and gave me renewed hope.
Philosophy of Ministry: My goal in life is to produce, prepare, and promote disciples of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20).
What is the most important part of your Ministry? Because every believer has been commissioned to make disciples of Christ, I am honored to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:4). I get to do this from the pulpit, by preaching God’s Word every week (2 Timothy 4:2). I also get to shepherd the flock of God among us in Salem, OR (1 Peter 5:2).
