Planting Churches

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.

Urgent Prayer Request

Hello to all my very faithful supporters! URGENT PRAYER REQUEST:I hope I haven’t alarmed you too much, but I do currently have a situation that needs immediate attention.

Help Is On The Way!

Last year shortly into our new homeschool year I had a horrible day that was part of a series of bad days.  I’m going to be completely honest.  The hardest part of this move to a place full of new things, new climate, new culture, snakes and tarantulas has not been the adjustment to […]

Taking Alpha On The Road

For years, the Alpha resources sat unused on a shelf here in Maraba.  Why?  Because they had never experienced or seen Alpha running, they didn’t know how to get started. A few weeks into running the first Alpha here in Maraba, the team loved it.  The Brazilian pastor said it was ‘the best thing they […]
