The success PAZ is experiencing in church-planting and disciple-making today is because of our great God who has drawn together passionate missionaries, giving visionaries, and tenacious prayer warriors for His purposes. You don't need to visit Brazil to get excited about what's happening here — just look at the fruit of the work. Every donation, every prayer, every act of service is having a tremendous impact. Truly investments are multiplied here in the Amazon Basin. Your partnership with us makes all the difference in PAZ's future success.

PAZ Church-Planting Fund
With an estimated 30,000 unreached villages in the Amazon, there is much work to be done and little time to do it. These places are hard and costly to reach, but precious people who have never heard the Gospel live there! This fund equips our church-planters to get to these places (by boat, plane or truck), share the love of Christ, train new leaders and plant a church. The eternal significance cannot be overstated. We have already planted hundreds of churches, and well over halfway to our goal of planting a total of 1,000 churches by 2014!
Revolving Construction Fund
This innovative fund offers a unique opportunity in Kingdom-guided giving. Not only is all of your donation used for the large costs of building a community its first physical church building, but the donation gets used a second time as that new church gives to the same fund to help other churches build their buildings! It's a gift that keeps on giving. From our experience we can tell you that after a community receives its first church building, attendance at the church typically doubles, sometimes triples, within the first year! Think of the impact that a building has!
With the Revolving Construction Fund, your donation builds a church, which then builds another church, which then builds another...
