Claudio and Nikki Farinha serve faithfully at Grace Bible Church Rugby in Rugby, England, where Claudio is an elder there. Claudio is committed to following the Lord's call to return to his home on the Island of Madeira to plant a church and reach unbelievers with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Madeira has been a spiritual graveyard, historically, for almost 200 years and is in desperate need of the Gospel. The Madeira Project aims to fulfill a three-fold purpose: Exaltation in being committed to glorifying God by making disciples, Evangelism in being committed to following the Lord's commands to speak to unbelievers to their need for Christ and salvation, and Edification in being committed to training and equipping every believer to use their spiritual gifts to serve the Lord and build His church.
