Story number 4 for 12 May 2000

By May 12, 2000

Elsewhere, it has been said that the church of Latin and Central America is quietly growing so rapidly that within the next decade, they will be the major missions sending force in the world. Global Advance’s David Shibley says the phenomenon is not so mysterious. “The strength of the Gospel throughout Brazil, has probably produced some of the most dramatic church growth and church planting in all of the world. I believe that the Brazilian church is poised to literally take the lead in the deploying of cross-cultural missionaries throughout the ends of the earth.” Shibley adds that this is the perfect timing for training Brazilian pastors. “Our Frontline Shepherd’s Conferences are scheduled throughout May for the purpose of challenging existing evangelical pastors throughout Brazil to make world evangelization as high a priority as the evangelization of their own nation.”
