More than 219 million people speak Portuguese, making it the 7th most widely spoken language on earth.
Matt & Silvia are working with the Lusophone project to build a three-pronged approach to developing Christian leaders, preparing them to make a lasting impact for the gospel in Portugal and Portuguese-speaking Africa.
- Sowing the seeds of leadership by stimulating critical thinking skills & biblical attitudes among youth & pre-teens of the next generation.
- Nurturing future leaders and reining their abilities though specialized training in biblical studies & leadership at the Portuguese Bible Institute.
- Multiplying the impact of these young leaders by discipling them as they begin serving in various roles throughout the Portuguese speaking world. By ensuring each leader becomes a discipler of other leaders, the result is multigenerational impact.
