About Juazeiro do Norte
Jauzeiro do Norte lies in the Northeast Region of Brazil in Ceará State. It is approximately 300 miles south of Fortaleza, the state capital and approximately 375 miles west of Recife.
Juazeiro do Norte is in the process of becoming a major hub in the Northeast Region of Brazil. Because this region of Brazil is one of the most heavily Catholic in the entire country, the area surrounding Juazeiro do Norte is one of the least reached and least discipled in all of Brazil. Few of the pastors in this region have any type of theological training.
