The Salvianos’ Story
The Salvianos are located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Over the last three years Nelson has developed a pastoral training program called ESCALE that he uses to train pastors in shanty towns. He is in the early stages of building a network of relationships and developing a leadership team to help him train pastors.
Brasil is one of the largest South American countries that stretches nearly across the entire continent. It is the largest Catholic country in the world with nearly 10% of the population. However, only a small percentage of them are actively pursuing their faith. There is growing momentum across the country to plant more churches and to reach remote villages.
