Jose & Andrea Testa
Jose and Andrea Testa will join the Dahers and the Pates at Igreja Batista Jardim Minesota, Campinas, Brazil. Jose will help with the pastoral internship program and desires to help stablishing a church-based school of theology. The main goal is to form/train faithful local pastors who will be able to teach the inerrant Word of God (2 Tim 2:2). Jose and Andrea plan to have a strong hospitality and visiting ministry at the local church, for the glory of Christ.
The Testas moved to Louisville in 2015 so Jose would study at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Since then, they have been members at Clifton Baptist Church, where Jose has completed his pastoral internship. They have three children. Luiz (married), Bruno and Julia. Julia is fluent in Portuguese and is excited to go with them to Brazil. Bruno will stay at his job and college in the US.
