NGC First Missions Sunday: January 9

We welcome Dr. Kent Martin and his wife Peggy, who are with us today to teach us about Rafiki Foundation. They are recently retired missionaries with Rafiki, now living in Franklin, NC.
We also welcome Dr. Breno Macedo, preaching to us during morning worship. A native of Brazil, Dr. Macedo earned an electronic engineering degree, and then felt a strong desire to help the church by embracing pastoral ministry. He pursued his Master of Divinity degree at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and there acquired the crucial foundations for the pastoral task of teaching, preaching, and counseling. The pulpit become more than a merely ministerial duty: it became passion.

During this time, Breno also developed a strong appreciation for historical theology and the doctrine of God’s covenants. This fascination led him to pursue further studies and at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary he investigated the development of covenant theology, focusing in the works of forgotten first principal of the University of Edinburg Robert Rollock. Now in his doctoral program at PRTS he focuses on the devolvement of preaching during the reformation and post-reformation era, giving attention to early modern England.

Visitors are welcome.
