Young people from across Brazil recently converged in Campinas with a single purpose: to live out the immeasurable love of God. The gathering was Brazil’s Nazarene Youth Conference, held 11-13 October at the Campinas Central Church under the theme Immeasurable.
More than 2,000 people were present during the Saturday night service and approximately 1,300 people participated in communion.
“[This was] a unique and remarkable moment for the Church of the Nazarene in Brazil,” said Mariana Belufe, NYC Brazil event secretary.
During the services, local musicians Tiago Arrais, Gabriel Guedes, Nazateen Music, and Paulo César Baruk led worship.
The event speakers were General Superintendent David Busic, Regional Director Christian Sarmiento, Nazarene Youth International Global Council President Adiel Amadeu, Nazarene Youth International Regional/National President Christiano Malta, and local pastors Rafael Machado and Aguiar Valvassoura.
In addition to training periods and workshops, five Maximum Mission projects were completed simultaneously throughout the Campinas region. Some projects included painting soccer/basketball courts at two regional schools, evangelism in public squares, and evangelism in church neighborhoods. Approximately 1,000 volunteers worked together on these projects to expand the Kingdom and bring love to the ends of the earth.
“We lived unforgettable days that will remain in our memory,” Belufe said. “There are things we can measure, but we believe that the seed planted in the heart of each adolescent and youth, as well as the love of God and what the Lord will do in future generations, cannot be measured, for this is immeasurable.”
