Marcos and Hanna Cordeiro

Santarém, PA

Marcos Cordeiro, son of Nilton & Cleucy Cordeiro (cofounders of PAZ along with Luke and Christine Huber), was born and raised on the mission field in Santarém, Brazil. Since early childhood, Marcos has been fully and faithfully involved in the ministry of church planting along the Amazon River with his parents. In 2009, he graduated from Oregon Health & Science University with a Bachelor in Science of Nursing. Marcos is now actively planting churches on small river villages along the Amazon, using his gift of nursing voluntarily to help promote the expansion of the Kingdom through clinics and house consults at the villages. Marcos is also involved with cell groups and discipleship in Santarém with the goal of strong multiplications and consolidation of believers, training them to become co-labors with the project of church planting on the rivers.

In the middle of 2012, Marcos was asked to start a church planting project at the “TAPARA River,” a forgotten branch of the Amazon river where there are about 9 villages. The first church has been planted at the village of “Santana do Tapara,” with 25 new converts. Marcos was recently invited by the leader of the next village up the river to start a church there as well.

Marcos invites you to contact him to be added to his monthly updates. He is currently raising support to continue full-time missions work with PAZ, so consider partnering with him to see the Amazon and the world won for Christ!
