Planting Churches and Training Leaders

Come Join a Short Term Mission Team

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.

9 Months and Counting

Hello to Our Beautiful Friends and Supporters! It’s always a pleasure to update you all on the latest news from the Amazon. I hope you are enjoying the Spring as it opens its doors to you. I must admit, it is easy to forget about seasons living in a climate that doesn’t change much throughout […]

March 2017 Newsletter

​ Dear Friends & Family, Thank you for your prayers and support. Denise and I greatly appreciate them! Denise and I have had an exciting month! One thing that was a blast was Macapá Vineyard’s yearly youth conference called Cristoval. This year we had our good friends and fellow missionaries Richie and Christie Bouthillier as […]

March Amazon Update!

Thank you so much for your prayers for our Cristoval event that took place during Carnival.  As I mentioned in our last update, Carnival is Brazil’s annual “celebration of the flesh” before the initiation of Lent on the Catholic calendar.  It’s a week-long party where “anything goes” and every city in the country shuts down […]

Living in Abundance

Hello to All of Our Amazing Friends and Supporters! First of all, I just want to say how much I enjoyed being able to spend time with so many of you during my visit last month! It was very refreshing to my soul just to be home and in familiar places with loving faces surrounding […]

We made it back safely to Brazil and appreciate greatly all of your prayers.  We wish we could thank everyone personally for their prayers, friendship, support, and love while we were back.  It was truly a wonderful experience, and unfortunately the time went by so quickly.  We wish we were able to see more of […]

February 2017 Newsletter

#8203; Dear Friends and Family, Thank you for your prayers and support. They are always so greatly appreciated. After all our visitors and the busyness of the Christmas season, Denise and I were happy to get back into our “normal” routine. When we say “normal” we say that very loosely because our “normal” is in […]

Letting Him Lead-Finding Our Home

One Saturday morning in Canada shortly before we came back to Brazil, I was leafing through flyers minding my own business when I saw a picture of a golden retriever.  For those who know us well, wed are often comparing ourselves to those overly friendly extroverted dogs. But we also really want one and it […]

Can You Give Your Yes?

This past Sunday we had the opportunity to share with our home church about what we feel God has placed on our hearts.  I felt strongly leading up to our talk that this was supposed to be something other than a slideshow and stories from the Amazon.  I felt God pressing on my heart that […]
