Church or Bible Study?

Hi Friends,

I'm new to the forum, and respectfully hoping to glean some perspective from anyone who may be invested or rooted in Curitiba.  I realize the cultural climate in virtually every modern city is secular in nature.  That said, I'd appreciate your thoughts, insights on the potential need/interest of a new international church (baptist, interdenominational) or even, on a smaller scale, of a weekly Bible Study? 

I'm envisioning a small, but growing group of multi-national people who unite in faith conviction around the Christ (Savior), with a simple focus to grow in our knowledge of God's love for us, and to learn to love God and one another better.  Is there something like this in Curitiba at the present?  An interest?

I'm in the early phase of exploring this possibility of planting an English speaking church in Curitiba through the International Baptist Convention (internationalchurchplanting.com/).  At a later date, we may visit for a more in depth look.  I'm born and raised in the U.S. and have had the privilege of serving as pastor for two international churches (Taipei & Bratislava).  My wife, Amanda, is Brazilian, born and raised. 

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

I have a place in Curitiba and did not find an English church. Below is an older post (sorry not Curitiba) but mentions the Baptist Church.

Hey thanks Friend.  I see you're from Texas, too? What brought you to Curitiba?  My online search hasn't turned up any English speaking churches for Curitiba. 

Any idea if there are specific areas of the city where Expats tend to reside?  When I lived in Taipei there were two general areas that were expat central.

Good evening.

Hi. I lived in CTBA but there was no particular concentration of expats on any neighborhood. No English
speaking religious denomination I know of. The Igreja Universal is very popular and its nationwide
but only in Portuguese.

What you´re thinking would be a great catalyst for a new demographic religious approach. I wish you
luck!
