Rafael Greve, Pastor and Juvenile Delinquent Specialist for the Londrina, Brazil Police Department. Rafael is one example of hundreds of emerging leaders receiving biblical training at South American Theological Seminary (SATS), founded by Langham Scholar Antonio Barro.
“My goal in working for the police is to contribute to justice for my society, but my challenge working as a pastor in my community is to share the grace, the love, and the Gospel of Jesus. My calling is to serve.”

Ways to Pray
Over the next several months, from Colombia, South America to Cambodia, Asia, pastors are gathering for biblical training. Pray for the supernatural wisdom and energy of our trainers and facilitators and for the thousands of pastors and lay leaders to be equipped to effectively present the life-transforming truths of the Bible to their churches and communities. Geoff New, a pastor from New Zealand, recently completed an “epic time” at a preaching training session and the blog Messages before Dawn details a joyous exchange of text messages describing his experience.
