Fulfilling the command to engage in mission (pray, send, go) and embody the church’s core values. Jorge’s vision of multiplying the church, healing spiritual blindness, pursuing revival, and serving others is directly in-line with Bethel’s core values. This will help deepen the relationship that Bethel has with Jorge and hopefully plant seeds which God can use to bless the Azores Church in the long run. 



Assist in three primary ways as follows:
(1) community engagement and outreach
(2) church ministries, and
(3) church building renovations (e.g., painting). 

Our Hosts: Jorge & Jacinta Melo

The focus of the Melo’s ministry is in Church Planting and Revitalization. Located in the picturesque Azores Islands (Portugal), the church to which Jorge & Jacinta were called to pastor was established in 1893. Nearly ready to close its doors with an average attendance of 4, God has blessed this church and increased this number to over 30 and the vision is for much, much more. The Melos would like to see a church planted on every one of the 9 islands that range in population from 300 people to 176,000. This ministry is not only bringing revitalization to one church. It is reaching an entire people group.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
