Grace Church Brockley is committed to making the good news of Jesus known around the world. We support mission partners operating in four continents.
Phil and Carolina
Serving in Anápolis, Brazil
Phil, Carolina and their children are based in the city of Anápolis in central Brazil. Phil was ordained in early 2019 and spent a number of years in Sao Paulo, Brazil where he served as assistant pastor at their local church and taught theology at a local seminary. Carolina helped lead the children’s work at church and home-schooled their young family during COVID lockdown.
After moving 600 miles inland, they now live on campus at a theological college (Seminário Teológico Cristão Evangélico do Brasil), where they help train pastors and missionaries. Caroline is also helping to translate and adapt the Mustard Seeds Sunday School material, which they love because it helps children really get their teeth into the Bible and learn to understand its message for themselves.
Terry and Hanka
Serving with Josiah Venture in Central and Eastern Europe
Terry and Hanka live in Ostrava in the Czech Republic with their two children. They have spent over 20 years reaching out to young people in the Czech Republic, and later across many surrounding countries, using music and performing arts to help share the gospel message. They are part of the mission organisation, Josiah Ventures where Terry is now head of training. He is passionate about equipping people to be leaders and trainers in evangelism and discipleship, so they in turn can help equip others in local churches. Hanka is a popular high school teacher, which is how she is able to ensure they stay up-to-date with changes in youth culture. Read more about their work with Josiah Venture here.
Both Terry and Hana are actively involved in a local Czech church plant where they serve on the leadership team and oversee the youth ministry.
Manuel and Pauline Redondo
Serving in barcelona, spain
Manuel and Pauline spent two years as part of our church family at Grace Church Brockley before being called to ministry in Spain. Manuel has a passion for evangelism and a desire to share the gospel in his homeland and in January 2022 he took on the role of assistant pastor at Església Evangèlica Baptista Bona Nova. Pauline is taking care of their young daughter, brushing up on Spanish language and settling the family into their new home.
Brada and Yatza
Serving in Novi Sad, Serbia
Brada is minister of a church plant in Novi Sad dedicated to reaching those who have never heard the gospel and to equipping church members to serve God. Brada and Yatza have two children and are supported by Crosslinks. You can read more about Grace Church Novi Sad and can access Brada’s prayer letters via the Crosslinks website.
Family in the Middle East
Our mission partner family are working as church planters in the Middle East. The area is little touched by the good news of Jesus and local believers often suffer persecution for their faith (the reason why we cannot publish their names here). The family we support is part of a small team living and sharing the good news of Jesus in their neighbourhood and with their colleagues.
