Graham Hill and Fernando R. Carvalho discuss what it means to shape a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual church. The GlobalChurch Project podcast episode 89.
Fernando R. Carvalho is the Senior Pastor of Message of Peace Church, which he and his wife Teresa founded in 1984. Pastor Fernando was born in Brazil, and has lived in the US since 1979.
Message of Peace Church began in 1984 as a church serving the Portuguese speaking community in the San Francisco bay area. The church today is an international and multiethnic church affiliated with the Assemblies of God and in fellowship with the American Baptist Churches. It is a community of believers that exists to share the good news of Christ, to bring people to worship God, to grow according to God's word, to fellowship with one another, and to serve others.
