PRESENT MINISTRIES

Two churches are meeting at Corroios, led by Eduardo and Cindi Angelo, and one in central Lisbon, led by the Angelos and Santiago and Laysse Magalhães. 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 and has seen a steady flow of more than 20 students. The FMC also has active ministries for children, youth, men and women. 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. There are around 15 active cell groups and several other discipleship groups. Training of new cell group leaders happens weekly.

Work in Portugal is challenging. Many are resistant to the gospel, evidenced by their involvement in idolatry, witchcraft and magic. The FMC in Portugal is now a sending church, having sent a missionary family to the former Portuguese colony of Sӓo Tomé and Principe (Africa) to plant churches and develop leaders.
