CCVA Church Lisbon Powers Ahead

Added 19 March 2013 View full list    Print version    
The CCVA (Abundant Life Christian Centre) Church in Lisbon, Portugal is moving boldly into a new era of engagement and growth.

The church recently celebrated its 15th anniversary and invited Mal Fletcher as keynote speaker for its Sunday celebration.

The church was pioneered by Pastor Joao Cardoso, a good friend of Next Wave International. Pastor Joao has followed a call to Angola, where he is pioneering new streams of outreach and church life.

The CCVA church is now headed by the gifted Pastor Joao Pedro Robalo and his wife Irene - and the signs of new vision and strategy are clear.

After his visit, Mal Fletcher said: 'This was the first church I visited in Portugal quite some time ago now. It was wonderful to return and see firsthand the planning that is going into seeing a new level of community service and influence for this church.'

The church is also the central reference point for a network of 20 other churches, led by Joao Cardoso, across Portugal.

After having a hard time talking with God one morning, I read to your Daily Recharge and suddenly felt God was speaking to me from the screen. Wow!!

Thanks for your visit to St. Louis & the thoughtful messages you brought. I am challenged to be a city on a hill, and to not be hidden. Perhaps on your next visit, you could join in the push-up contest or drive the motorcycle. Best wishes for continued success.

Mal, a massive thanks from a baby boomer & a gen-Xer who had the priviledge of being inspired by you at the ALC Leadership Academy. You have really helped make sense of the world that we are seeking to influence...
