Chico & Shari Pinto

Serving in Brazil

Personal website

We are the Pinto family called to plant churches in the vast harvest field of Brazil. Our home church is Woodcrest Baptist Church in Fridley, MN which is pastored by Pastor Mark Poorman. We will be plating churches through our local church, Igreja Batista Maranata, in Cuiabá, Brazil whose pastor is veteran BIMI missionary John Raehl. We serve with Baptist International Missions, Inc. (BIMI) located in Harrison, TN.

Since 2006 we have been tentmaking missionaries working under missionaries John and Joyce Raehl at Baptista Maranta Church in Cuiabá, Brazil. We also have been working at Maranatha Camp alongside missionary Peter Doolittle. Our family speak portuguese fluently and know the culture and people as well.

Our 3 Kids, Matthew (born in 2005), Alexander (2007) and Isabella (2009) have been saved and baptized and help us in the ministry however they can.
