Roberto Júnior is a Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. He was commissioned in August 2017.
The Global Mission Fellows program takes young adults ages 20-30 out of their home environments and places them in new contexts for mission experience and service. The program has a strong emphasis on faith and justice. Global Mission Fellows become active parts of their new local communities. They connect the church in mission across cultural and geographical boundaries. They grow in personal and social holiness and become strong young leaders working to build just communities in a peaceful world.
Roberto, who is also known as "Junior" by family and friends, is from Belo Horizonte in Minas Gerais State, Brazil, where he is member of the Methodist Church in Santa Tereza, a congregation of the Methodist Church of Brazil. He holds a degree in Civil Engineering from the State University of Minas Gerais. He has worked as a civil engineering trainee and an office assistant.
Raised in a Christian home, Junior as a young adult began to put heavy emphasis on Bible study and learning about the history of Christianity, and keeps learning about the dimensions of faith and God’s love in Jesus Christ.
When he was 15 years old he participated in a missionary project where he began to understand the mission that Christ left for us. “Now I understand that I am a missionary wherever I am taking Christ to other people, but a Christian who does not take Christ to others is not a Christian.”
