Brazil 2020


You Are Invited to Prayerfully Consider This Amazing Opportunity!

Brazil Encounter
July 20 - August 3, 2020
A Life Changing Experience for people of all ages!


Dear Partner in Ministry,

Every five years, Baptists from around the world gather to celebrate their unity in Jesus Christ. This Region has taken groups to past BWA Youth conferences and many have attended other conferences. These are incredible experiences of connecting with Baptists from over 100 countries.

In July of 2020, adults, young adults and youth are gathering in Rio de Janeiro. The youth conference is merging with the adult conference for the first time so that people of all ages can celebrate their oneness in Jesus Christ!

We are once again going to organize a group from our churches to travel to Brazil if there is enough interest in going. The trip will include the incredible experience of being with believers of all ages from around the world AND a mission encounter at Hope Unlimited with Global Servants, Corenne and Phil Smith, who serve teens and youth who have been rescued from the streets. Depending upon the cost and additional time we may include a side trip to Iguazu Falls.

I am estimating the cost to be around $3000. In many cases, churches, family, and friends can provide support to help make this experience possible through fundraisers and sponsorship. It truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity to take advantage of!

On Monday evening, January 13, I will be inviting those who are interested to join a zoom video call to discuss the details and possibility of going to Brazil. Please send an email to if you want to join the call. Instructions to join the call will be sent to you.
