I am Eriomar Maia. I was saved by the grace of Jesus Christ in 1994. In addition to the gift of salvation, God has given me three precious gifts: my wife Daniele, whom I have been married since 1995, and my two children, Damaris and John.
Looking back, I can identify three phases during my Christian life:
The first phase - formation. I was discipled and trained for ministry by godly men in the local church and at Brazil's finest seminary (SIBIMA).
The second phase - pastoral ministry. I spent 19 years shepherding the local church (discipling and training others) in the cities of Fortaleza and Maceió.
The third phase - church planting. Today, we have been serving in missionary ministry in Aracaju (Northeast Brazil) since 2018. I have the joy of seeing God saving sinners and starting a new church.
It is a privilege to participate in God's grace in action in all phases of ministry.
I am also very grateful to be part of the BGFM Global family and its vision to assist the Local Church in local and global ministry.
Your support for us and our ministry is greatly appreciated.
