Planting Churches

Planting Churches and Training Leaders

Welcome to Xingu Mission


We are here to serve the people of Brazil. We believe that the best way to serve the people of Brazil is to help them discover the love, grace and hope found only in Jesus Christ.

We seek to obey the commandments of Jesus to baptize, disciple and teach about the Kingdom of God. We also see the Kingdom expanding by training leaders and planting churches.

We have been serving the people of the Xingu region for over 15 years. Our operations cover such a large area that we have divided our operations into three regions; Altamira, Portel and Marabá. In the USA we are known as Xingu Mission, and in Canada Xtreme Mercy.

Xingu Mission is a non-denominational, charitable organization.



Planting churches, training leaders, and helping the poor are part of the Xingu Mission DNA.

#8203; Dear Friends and Family, Thank you for your prayers and support. They have been greatly appreciated. Denise and I have been in Macapá for almost 3 months now.

Welcome to the New Year

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I must admit, seeing pictures of my family gathered around the cozy living room opening presents made me a little homesick. Something about being in 90 degree weather makes it hard to get into the Christmas spirit. It’s just not the same. […]

November Amazon Update! Steve and Elba

At the church we just recently had a community wedding with 6 couples getting married.  It was a BIG deal and a great testimony to a culture that does not place much value in the sanctity of marriage.  The even more incredible thing is that 3 of the couples live in a remote community called […]

November 2015 Newsletter

Hello to all my Supporters! I want to thank you all for all your prayers and encouraging messages you sent last month concerning the situation with the school.
