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.

The black water of the river is like a mirror, reflecting the intense green of the foliage that surrounds us.  The canoe lies low in the water with less than an inch between the eight of us and the river.  We all joke about what might be watching us from the banks.    Michael Hansen of […]

The “One Another” Verses

The Bible has a lot to say about how we are to treat those around us. When you are in doubt about how God wants you to respond to a certain relationship situation, here is God’s council. (I copied this list from Contagious Disciple, by Watson J., & Watson P.). COMMANDS FOR LIVING IN COMMUNITY […]

Surprising Thoughts About Unity

Moving towards conflicting ideas may be more helpful than moving away from them. Here is why.                   Robust Unity I used to think that one way to have a more unified team was to somehow avoid conflict. Then I heard this statement: “A pastor who avoids conflict has […]
