Luciano & Luciene Pires
Luciano and Luciene returned to Brazil, their homeland, in 2002 after completing degrees at Covenant Theological Seminary. Luciano received an M.Div. and Th.M., while Luciene earned a MA in Theological Studies. They established a home-based Christian Institute called Colloquium in Goiania, Brazil, a city of 1.2 million people with over 20 universities which are home to about 65,000 students. During these fourteen years of ministry, they ministered to hundreds of people every year through their Bible Studies, the annual Colloquium Conference, and various outreach activities. Out of the ministry of Colloquium the Mosaico Presbyterian Church was planted, a godly and vibrant community of people.
The Pireses are now preparing to move to Porto, northern Portugal, where they will take Colloquium to a country where only 0.47% of the population are professed Christians (less than India and Japan).
Their mission at Colloquium is to plant churches by presenting the truths of the Gospel in a way that will challenge the hearts and minds of this generation, especially university students, aiming thus to reach out to non-believers and to equip Christians to live all of life under the Lordship of Christ.
