How can you help support our ministry?
My name is Thiago McHertt, and I serve as a pastor to Igreja Protestante Reformada. We are a small congregation of around 12 families located in Joinville, in the South of Brazil. We are currently in the process of becoming a candidate church to join the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches, under the guidance of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho.
I'm 34 years old, and I've been married to Sara for 15 years, and we have 3 children. She's a full-time house executive and educator. As for me, besides serving as a pastor, in my free time I also work for a Reformed Publishing House in Brazil called Monergismo as a member of the editorial team, and as a translator. You can see some of my work in this link.
This tent-making arrangement is due to the fact that, being a small church, we don't have enough funds to support the pastoral work in full, as well as keep the costs of the hotel room we use for worship. And that's why, besides trusting the generosity of our church family, we decided to invite support from our international brothers in the faith to help our ministry.
Prayer is the first way in which you can help — and that's because I know we really need it, and not because it sounds godlier to list it first. We covet your prayers for us, and we appreciate all your help on this front.
The second is to donate to help fund the ministry of our church. Considering the pastoral, mercy and outreach ministries, and location expenses, our monthly budget is $1,700.00 dollars (considering the current exchange rate). Due to the devaluation of our currency, a long term commitment is not necessary in order to make a difference. Even small, one-time gifts are really significant.
You may use the PayPal link below (also supports recurring donations), or you may use our Bitcoin address (bech32). Please, notice that, as an unincorporated church in Brazil all donations have to be directed to a personal account.
