Brazil is not only home to the greatest soccer on the planet, it’s also the wealthiest and most influential country in all of South America. Its most important city, Sao Paulo, is one of the largest cities in the world and hosts the #1 ranked university on the continent. College students from all over Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East come here to live and study. When we take the Gospel to the students on the campuses of Sao Paulo, the spiritual impact will not only change their lives, but will expand far beyond the borders of Brazil to impact the nations.
“Sampa” (short for Sao Paulo) is a sprawling city full of friendly people, incredible diversity, and great spiritual need. There are only a handful of Cru staff working in the city and on these campuses and they’re excited about the US sending them more! Portuguese is helpful, but not necessary.
