Lucas, Juliana and Matheus Nunes
Serving in Ecuador on Global Deployment | South America
Juliana (07/28/86), Lucas Nunes (07/09/85) and their first son Matheus (10/01/16) are missionaries of the Church of the Nazarene and were assigned to serve in the South America Regional Office, located in Argentina.
Lucas graduated in 2007 in the course of Administration from Paulista University and completed his postgraduate degree in Personnel Management at INPG College in 2016.
Juliana, on the other hand, graduated in 2008 in Advertising from ESAMC and completed her postgraduate degree in Business Strategic Management from UNICAMP in 2012.
Lucas is the communications coordinator for South America Region and Juliana is the Regional Personnel Coordinator.
The couple’s heart burns with the desire to serve God fully through their professions, beyond what they were already able to do in their local church and district.
As local ministers of the Castelo Church of the Nazarene, they served in youth and praise ministries.
Lucas was in charge of NYI for the Sao Paulo Southeast District in 2015, where he elaborated the theme Unity and Holiness, with the involvement of about 60 churches and 4,500 young people.
Both were born in Brazil, where they married in 2012 and lived until their assignment to Argentina.
Going Where the Church is Not Yet
Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
