Bruno & Beth Sene

Bruno and Beth Sene served as pastors at the Paz Church in Barueri, São Paulo. Beth is the second daughter of mission directors Jeff and Becky Hrubik, and grew up in Santarem, on the Amazon. Every since she was a child, she loved missions and wanted to work full-time for the Lord. In 2004, Beth graduated from Oral Roberts University with a degree in Electrical Engineering and a masters in Christian counseling. While still single, she served the Lord on the mission field in Guajara-Mirim (a city on the Brazil/Bolivia border) and also in Japan. Before returning to Brazil, Beth decided to study at Elim Bible Institute, where she met her husband Bruno.

Bruno was born and raised in São Paulo. At the age of 17, God put a deep passion in his heart to be involved in the Lord’s work. During his college years, the Lord opened the doors for him to do a year of Bible school at Elim Bible Institute. There, he met Beth and they became best friends. After returning to São Paulo, Bruno finished his degree in Business Administration. In 2007, Bruno and Beth were married and began their life together in Barueri!

Already very involved with the local church, Bruno and Beth were ordained pastors in 2010. They were involved in cell groups, with over 180 cells under their covering, and one-on-one discipleship. By the grace of God and through God-given strategies, they saw the youth/young adult ministry called DIFLEN (DIscipling and Forming Leaders in Every Nation) grow from about 40 people to about 2000! Then, in 2013, a huge challenge and oportunity was presented to them. They were invited to join a team that would be sent to Japan to help grow a youth/young adult-oriented Paz church plant. After receiving God’s confirmation and transitioning their work in Barueri to other capable leaders, they joined the Japan team!

2014 was the year of the big move! They had their two-year-old son Paul (born in São Paulo in 2012), and Beth was about 6 months pregnant with their second son Daniel (born in Japan in 2014). They are currently studying the Japanese language, and fully involved with the cell groups and one-on-one discipleship at Paz Church Japan. Similar to their work in Brazil, they are responsible for overseeing the church’s Media, Worship, and Youth/Young adult ministry (DIFLEN), as well as the Children’s ministry.

Bruno and Beth’s passions include raising up strong Christian leaders in the local church, drawing people into deeper intimacy with God through worship, and raising up an army of young people that are bold and passionate for Jesus! They love their family and love living for Jesus where ever they may be in the world!
