About Arts in Mission
Arts Release is a group of creative arts specialists who love Jesus and people of other cultures. They are reaching the unreached, worshipping, discipling, training and mobilising through the God-given power of the arts, inspired by the Holy Spirit.
The ArtsRelease teams (some full-time, some part-time) enjoy expressing God's love through various art forms. Some have professional arts training and others have picked up skills on the way.
WEC currently have teams based in England, France, Germany, Spain and Singapore. Our ArtsRelease team members sometimes travel to work alongside WEC teams in other countries, but also increasingly work collaboratively online, doing research, training, performance, and leading worship using various art forms.
Brazil (Portuguese: Brasil) is the largest country in both South America and Latin America.
At 8.5 million square kilometers (3.2 million square miles) and with over 208 million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. The capital is Brasília, and the most populated city is São Paulo.
Urban areas concentrate 84.35% of the population, and the Southeast region is the most populated one, with over 80 million inhabitants.
Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline of 7,491 kilometers (4,655 mi). It borders all other South American countries except Ecuador and Chile and covers 47.3% of the continent's land area.
Its Amazon River basin includes a vast tropical forest, home to diverse wildlife, a variety of ecological systems, and extensive natural resources spanning numerous protected habitats. This unique environmental heritage makes Brazil one of 17 megadiverse countries, and is the subject of significant global interest and debate regarding deforestation and environmental protection.
Brazil's economy is the world's eighth-largest. Until 2010 Brazil had one of the world's fastest growing major economies. It has been characterised as a potential superpower. One of the world's major breadbaskets, Brazil has also been the largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years.
Brazilian cuisine varies greatly by region, reflecting the country's varying mix of indigenous and immigrant populations. A typical meal consists mostly of rice and beans with beef, salad, french fries and a fried egg. Often, it's mixed with cassava flour (farofa). The national beverage is coffee!

Brazil has 309 people groups and 30 of these are considered unreached - these 30 people groups have yet to hear the good news about of Jesus.
89.5% are professing Christians, and of those, 24.7% call themselves Evangelical.

WEC in Brazil
WEC has been in Brazil since 1922, and WEC’s first branch outside Africa was established in 1923 called ‘The Heart of Amazonia Mission’.
Today, WEC Brazil's Vision is the evangelization of the unreached people groups in partnership with Brazilian Churches.
'We work in partnership with Brazilian churches in order to send out missionaries who are well prepared, as well as care for them and their families, so that they might have an effective and long-lasting ministry among unreached peoples. We also have teams reaching out to indigenous peoples in Brazil.'
