Ronald & Rhonda Rice
Our mission is to help plant LIFE Church – Lisbon International Fellowship Church (https://www.lifechurchlisbon.com/) in Lisbon, Portugal . We’ll be working on a pastoral team alongside veteran missionaries Dan and Joy West. We are excited about God opening the door for us in this part of Europe. We will use our giftings in pastoral leadership, music, discipleship, teaching, hospitality, as well as others to reach the international community in Lisbon. While the native language of Portugal is obviously Portuguese, a large percentage of the population speaks English. Many immigrants and ex-pats from other parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa speak English and make Portugal their home. We will be learning Portuguese to broaden our range of ministry among the nationals.
Billed as one of Europe’s oldest city, Lisbon and the surrounding area is home to almost 3 million people. On the southern coast, it is the capital of Portugal. While there are a number of notable cathedrals, the population is primarily secular. Secular in this context simply means people living without God. Our mission is to reach the international community of Lisbon with the Good News of the Gospel. There are over two hundred thousand immigrants living in Lisbon. This means our opportunities are without boundaries.
