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.
