Portugal Project

Pastor Tiago Oliveira and his family have been members of Grace Baptist Church (GBC), Jackson, Mississippi since June of 2012. After more than one decade serving at Igreja Evangélica Baptista da Graçia in Lisbon, Portugal, Tiago moved to Mississippi for additional training, with the goal of returning to Portugal to continue his ministry as pastor and help with Seminary training. Pastor Oliveira is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson (MDiv) and is currently pursuing a PhD in Biblical Studies at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids. He also is an elder at GBC, were he and his family have worshipped and served faithfully since 2016.

God willing, the Oliveiras will return to Portugal by the end of 2021, where Tiago will be the pastor of First Baptist Church in Lisbon (a church revitalization work), the president of a local seminary, and the European Coordinator for 9Marks. GBC is planning to become Tiago’s sending church.

Currently, the Lord has opened the door for the Oliveiras to move to Washington, D.C. where he has joined the 9Marks team and is continuing his preparation to return to Portugal to serve his country of birth. Tiago has completed the Capitol Hill Baptist Church pastoral internship, and 9Marks has extended him an invitation to join 9Marks as their European Coordinator. God willing, Tiago and his family will live in Washington, D.C. during this preparation time and then return to Portugal by the end of 2021.

In order to make this possible, the Oliveiras still need to raise part of their living expenses for their time in Washington, D.C. plus the start-up expenses for their move to Portugal. GBC has the privilege to recommend and support this family. However, additional funds in the amount of $31,600 are needed to support the Oliveiras.

To join in this effort for the sake of the kingdom work in Portugal and for the glory of God, please prayerfully consider donating.
