Thiago Oliveira - Brazil

Pursuing a call to leadership, I am helping with a growing church plant to provide pastoral assistance and developing work with teenagers and young adults. The church is situated in the neighbourhood of Ingleses, where there isn’t much for young people to do and there’s a real need to engage young people with positive activities and the gospel message.

Initially I intend to train at the JOCUM (YWAM) base here in Florianópolis for five months while I increase my involvement in the Vineyard, initiating outreach and discipleship work with young adults. After YWAM the plan is to dedicate more time to developing my area of ministry at Vineyard Floripa with CMS mission partners Jimmy and Katia Rocks and the team.


To expand the kingdom of God, in the power of the Holy Spirit, planting churches, leading young people and helping them to know Jesus.


Working with youth and young adults in discipleship and evangelism

More about Thiago Oliveira

I am 32 years old, I am from São Paulo Brazil. Since I was young I went to church with my mum, but at the age of 25 I had an encounter with Jesus. Since then I have felt a stirring to be a missionary, I have worked as a volunteer in some projects, one of these was in a rehab centre for drug addicts.

I moved to Florianópolis where I met Jimmy [Rocks] and the Vineyard, where I intend to serve the church and my brothers and sisters, fulfilling God’s purposes.

I have felt a call to share Jesus, make disciples that make other disciples, and plant healthy churches where people can encounter Jesus.
