Brazil Bible Fellowship Church grew from a plant by the Indiana Bible Church Mission (which became part of MCE in 2004). It graduated from the mission in the late 1980s, but fell upon hard times resulting in it being re-planted by the mission in 1997.
The original congregation, in the 1980s, built a brick-faced building with an auditorium seating more than 80 people. Additional space includes five classrooms and the Pastor’s office. The building and property are debt free.
The church is located in Clay County, in the community of Brazil (pop. 7000). Some of the residents have lived there since they were born but many have moved in from the large city, commuting back there for their employment. Local employment includes factory jobs and crop farming. Brazil is working hard to draw more employers as a key to becomming a thriving, job providing community.
