Niteroi, Brazil - Ben Rogers
The goal of the Niteroi Mission Team is to establish a New Testament church in the city of Niteroi, Brazil. The prayer is that God will begin raising up Brazilian leaders who will eventually take charge of the church as elders, deacons, and ministers. The hope is that this church plant will serve as a 'flagship' church, eventually taking on new church plants in the surrounding area.
Ben grew up in Santiago, Chile where his parents were missionaries for almost 8 years. Juliana was born and raised in Belo Horizonte, Brazil where she grew up with her devout Christian parents, her sister, and two brothers.
