How Tiago serves:
I'm a sinner redeemed, restored, and used by God's grace. I grew up in Fortaleza Brasil, although was born in Bahia. God revealed Himself to me and made me savor His grace when I was running my hell-bound race, indifferent to Him. God's love for sinners and His desire to glorify Himself in everything He does have been the foundational ideas of my life and ministry.
I married my best friend and partner in ministry, Lilika (her real name is Liliane, but only her mom calls her that), and she has been the love of my life and my support in every step! God blessed us with three awesome kids, Iago (11), Ester (8), and Joshua (3).
The first phase of our ministry is to work in partnership with Brazil Gospel Fellowship Mission, Grace Bible Church, SIBIMA, and Clark Summit University to launch a Ph.D. program in Brazil in the next 6 - 9 years, God willing. During this time I'll be teaching at SIBIMA, helping to plant churches in Northeastern Brazil, writing and translating books, recruiting and mobilizing new missionaries to reach the nations (especially Muslim countries), promoting a high view of Scripture by expository preaching conferences, and offering a model (for teaching adults and children) to the Portuguese-speaking countries around the world.
As a family, we want to proclaim Jesus where He is not named for the sake of His name and the joy of the nations.
