Dream


Dream


Hope For Brazil Ministries is the vision and dream of Dave and Robin McClamma, who both have been going to Brazil for almost fifteen years to serve in various mission projects. In 2011, they sensed God’s call to serve the Lord through full-time ministry to Brazil.

Known as Pastor Dave in Brazil, he and his wife, Robin – along with the teams of people – are bringing the love of Christ to Brazil in ministry, techniques in leadership to equip National Pastors, Church Leaders and Believers in Evangelism, Church Ministry and being “on mission” for God.

Dave and Robin have been married for over 41 years and have three daughters and four grandchildren.

They have served in seven churches in their thirty-nine years in ministry. Most of Pastor Dave’s ministry has been as Associate Pastor, Pastor and Senior Associate Pastor.

When God called them to start Hope for Brazil Ministries, Dave and Robin were serving at First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland, Florida. After serving twelve-and-a-half years with Pastor Jay Dennis and the wonderful people of FBC specializing in missions and church growth, he and Robin were called to full-time to Brazil.

Over the years of Ministry and Missions, Dave has been a part of Teams and has lead Teams in International Church Planting, Church Construction, Outreach Ministries, Mentoring, Leadership Conferences, Evangelism training and Church Ministry development. It has been a joy to be part of these ministries all throughout Brazil focusing the last eight-and-a-half years in the Amazon Basin based out of both Manaus and Santarem.

There is a great vision for this ministry! It’s big, the dream is big and our desire to see GREAT things happen in and through this ministry is big. It will happen with your prayers, your financial support, and with you – going and being “on mission” for God! Join us today and serve with us in Brazil… building God’s kingdom together!

Purpose in Ministry


Purpose in Ministry


Hope for Brazil Ministries is primarily dedicated to demonstrate the love of Jesus in loving, practical ways to the people of Brazil. We are also driven to develop and strengthen area churches so that the development on ministry activities are accomplished on a local level.

It is important for us to develop relationships with influential individuals and groups in local communities. Local governments, business, and organizations are frequently used by God for the supply of resources needed to minister in practical ways to the people in their region.

What We Believe


What We Believe


  1. We believe in one God who eternally exist in three persons, The FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT
  2. We Believe the Bible to be fully and uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it is the only authoritative, inerrant and infallible written Word of God.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, inerrant teaching, substitutionary death and atonement, bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of God.
  4. We believe that man, created in the image of God, was tempted by Satan and fell, and because of his consequent depraved state, requires regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation.
  5. We believe that salvation is received by faith alone, apart from works, and consists of repentance toward God for forgiveness of sins, the imputation of Christ's righteousness, and the gift of eternal life.
  6. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is being sanctified and empowered to live a godly life, demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit and practicing the gifts of the Spirit.
  7. We believe that the true church, the body of Christ, is composed of all those who have been regenerated and is the appointed instrument for the fulfillment of Christ's Great Commission.
  8. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: water baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.
  9. We believe in the imminent, visible, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
  10. To glorify God, fulfilling the Great Commission by planting churches led by Nationals, Mobilizing the church Body of Christ to make an impact for God.
  11. We believe it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and word to these truths and to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all the world.
