In this very pragmatic culture, churches became very legalistic and recently connected to ” church growth movements”, while the South of Brazil still has many unreached areas.
Many churches are willing to reinvent themselves and Biblical enlightenment can really help with that. Biblical Counseling has a good reception and can help in bringing a new focus even to ecclesiology. We are very excited to see the impact of Biblical Counseling training on the churches and church leaders of Brazil.
