Ministry Location: Portugal, Eurasia
Ministry Focus: According to recent statistics, Europe is the least evangelized continent in the world. With its 750 million people and with less than 4% attending church, Europe stands today as the greatest challenge to modern day missions. Jorge and Jacinta Melo have recently been approved as PAOC Global Workers candidates to Portugal. They plan to use affordable media platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and local cable television to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ into every home in a nation that is in spiritual decline. They will come alongside local pastors and national leaders to multiply their efforts to reach the nation with the good news of the gospel, using media as an agent of hope and transformation not only for Portugal, but also to other Portuguese speaking countries.
Ministry History: Jorge and Jacinta have been in full-time ministry for over 32 years. They were senior pastors in churches in Manitoba and western Ontario, and they also served as PAOC global workers in Brazil. They were also global voluntaries to India, were they have planted a church that grew to over two thousand people, developed a ministry training center, and started several orphanages and rescue homes for victims of sex trafficking.
