The MJBI linked with Har Zion Messianic Congregation in Brazil and Netivyah Ministries in Jerusalem, Israel, to form a Brazilian MJBI in February of 2000.
Under the leadership of Marcelo Guimaraes, the MJBI has graduated over 500 students. Many of these graduates now lead Messianic congregations and pastor churches throughout Brazil. Though remaining closely related in vision and friendship with the MJBI, the school is now fully self-supporting and independent; and the final MJBI graduation class will be in December of 2012. Many of the MJBI classes have been integrated into their successful online CATES program for Portuguese speakers.
We encourage any Portuguese speakers to avail themselves of the rich CATES curriculum. For more information, please go to www.cates.com.br.
