Emerging Church Portugal

The Portuguese crowd had a conference last weekend which went really well. Barbara, who i have mentioned before, is raising money for some land near Lisbon where many of them will live in community and have a base for ministry around Europe and among street kids in the cities. Some of us are putting a little money towards it because we believe in the vision and in this exciting and passionate emerging leaders. Read more about this land on Barbara’s blog ShantiPilgrim. Check out her little hut in the woods . .


I had a fantastic time in Portugal back in 2004 [blogged it here] and I will be there again September 10 -12, 2007

  • Thanks Andrew…it’s really cool you’re posting that…
    I might see you in May in Germany 🙂
    still praying and deciding about it…

  • money for this land in portugal is money for a very good cause. i’ve told barbara this before but i’ve never known anyone like her in whom Jesus seems to reside so comfortably.

  • I am so happy to see this post, because I, too know Barbara, and I swear that she breathes and sweats out Shalom. Like no one else I’ve ever met. I can’t wait to see what God does through this little plot of land…
