About Seminary and Theological Training

Diego Araújo said, "My aim in undertaking a PhD program is intrinsically related to my passion for, and my call to serve, the Kingdom of God in Brazil. I hope I will be able to make a small contribution to Brazil by somehow reducing the current disparity between the dramatic increase of evangelicals in the country (now estimated in over 50 million) and the limited number of qualified spiritual leaders."

Diego seeks to write, preach, teach, encourage, and train pastors and potential scholars so that more Brazilians will publish Christian literature and theological books from the context of their large and diverse country. He will serve on the faculty team at Seminário Teológico Cristão Evangélico do Brasil (SETECEB), effective August 2021. The seminary shares Diego's vision for theological training, missions, strengthening local churches, and equipping future pastors. The seminary will provide 20% of his support, while Diego will be responsible for fundraising the rest.

In addition to this work, Diego has a connection to Tyndale House (a Christian community dedicated to researching the primary evidence relevant to the study of the Bible), and they envision working together in the future to invest in Brazilian seminary students.

Meet the Pastor: Diego Araújo

Diego Araújo was born and raised in Northeast Brazil. He's an ordained pastor of the Union of the Evangelical Congregational Churches of Brazil since 2007. After graduation, Diego served as a preaching and training pastor of a church of 500, with three church plants in addition. Diego also was involved in other aspects of ministry like counseling and visitation, and said he considers it a privilege to have been able to spend the first years of ministry alongside an experienced pastor in whom he found support, friendship, and discipleship.

In 2014, Diego resigned from the pastorate in order to pursue his doctorate from the London School of Theology and is currently working on his PhD dissertation on Paul's letter to the Colossians. Diego speaks Portuguese and English fluently, plus can read and understand Spanish, German, and French.

For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. (Colossians 1:19-20)
