TEAM Portugal exists to promote a network of healthy reproducing churches that are both relevant and lively, where people’s lives are being transformed to be like Jesus. NorteVerdadeiro (TrueNorth) is a small community of believers at the University of Minho. The university is one of the largest universities in Portugal, with more than 15,000 students including international students. It’s part of the “New Universities” movement that has significantly changed the landscape of higher education in Portugal in the last few years. Located in an area known for its economic growth and young population, the University of Minho has been a driving force in the development of the region.
We are building relationships with university students, staff, and professors in small group settings. The specific characteristics of the university community are integrated into the teaching, schedule, and small group structure of the ministry. We are using creative ways to communicate the gospel and pray that the Lord intervenes in the hearts of non-believers to open them to considering the gospel and trusting Him.
Our team consists of Stephen and Patricia Mosely from TEAM and Leandro and Priscila Guarnieri from MAEB Brazil (Missão Aliança Evangélica do Brasi or The Evangelical Alliance Mission of Brazil).We would love for a Portuguese couple and another couple from the US, Europe, or Brazil to join us.
