Ministry Details

REACH Brazil is a 22-week mission training experience. It combines classroom teaching and outREACH giving participants a taste of different mission contexts. A Biblical foundation for discipleship provides a structure for spiritual growth, healing and a platform for sharing your faith. This is an opportunity for you to embody Christ’s love, serving others selflessly.  Every participant will have a coach-mentor to help them on their journey, and personal development. Weekly sessions will help participants set goals and move towards them through the course of the programme.

REACH Brazil is a full time, residential programme designed to help prepare for cross-cultural missions through understanding the Biblical basis of mission and building a strong foundation for works in mission. The outREACH time will help participants gain first-hand mission experience and put what they've learnt into practice.


The modules consist of orientation, spiritual formation, evangelism, leadership and teamwork, missions, purpose and calling, VCJF, transition, de-brief and re-entry.
