Total trip cost: $2500
Mato Grosso is an interior landlocked state that is located on the western border of Brazil with Bolivia. The capital city is Cuiabá—a city of over 500,000 in population. Reaching & Teaching International Ministries is working closely with the Brazilian Baptist Convention on three potential projects in the state Mato Grosso in Brazil which has the potential to offer training to a significant number of pastors in this strategic part of the country. The first of these projects will be located in the capital city of Cuiabá. This location will draw eager pastors and leaders from a wide region of the state of Mato Grosso to receive this training.
Reaching & Teaching is seeking a likeminded partnering church that will send qualified teachers to Cuiabá 1 to 3 times per year for the duration of the 3-year training program.
Those who participate on this trip will teach an overview of the Old Testament, give instruction on the spiritual discipline of Bible Intake and God's Call to Ministry.
All team members are expected to procure a copy of: "Hearts, Heads, and Hands: A Manual for Training Others to Train Others" and have read: "Foreign to Familiar: A Guide to Understanding Hot - And Cold - Climate Cultures."
