Silva Family

Pastor Ricardo Silva View Community Churches in Brazil in a larger map
Growth is everywhere. You can see it in your communities, you can see it in your country, and you can see it at this rural church run by Pastor Ricardo Silva as well.  Thanks to a donation from Greenwood Community Church this small community of worship was able to begin a sports ministry in the newly built open-air sanctuary. The children’s programs have also experienced growth thanks to two new classrooms located below the building.

What has the donation allowed us to do?

Soccer ministries every Friday night- More and more people are showing up each week to this event. The vast majority of them do not regularly attend the church.

More outdoor children’s programs – These have allowed us to fund VBS type events, like water balloon games, sack races, and ect.
Larger Sunday services – Now the space for our service is much more open and can fit more people. Additionally, there is a larger projection screen area for optimal viewing so everyone is guaranteed to see.

What is left to do?

Because of the rising costs of construction we still owe $4,000 for improvements on the facility. Most of this cost goes towards laying cement on the floors so that we could begin the soccer ministry right away. Other expenses include finishing the classrooms and putting up shelves.

How can you help?

Please consider making a donation to help this community of God pay off their remaining building expenses. Furthermore, as so many new people come to the sports ministries, pray that they will become more connected with the church and will receive Jesus Christ as their savior. And lastly, pray in general for the hand of God to be present in this church’s mission to reach out to the surrounding community.
World Renewal is a 501C not-for-profit organization and all donations will be receipted to you from the office. With everyone helping a little, the work of God in Brazil can get done. Everyone can do something. Thank you for your help.
