Three churches are meeting at Corroios, led by Eduardo and Cindi Angelo, one in central Lisbon, led by Santiago and Laysse Magalhães, and another in Barreiro led by Angelos and Hugo and Carla Conceicao. In addition to regular worship times, the Portuguese churches regularly sponsor awakening and missionary conferences serving to build up the body of Christ. These congregations also are known for excellent music ministry. A seminary was established to train and form church planters, pastors and cell-group leaders. The Barnabas Project provides food and assistance to low-income families and the homeless.
Cida Matos, another missionary from Brazil, has been serving since 2000 and leads the cell-group network in Portugal.
