Nuno and Gila were both born in Viana do Castelo, Portugal. Married since 1999, they have 2 children, Leonor and Diogo. They lived and worked outside Portugal for 10 years, before returning from the Middle East where they met Jesus, in 2017. They returned to Portugal having felt the call of God to return and serve full-time as missionaries. They are investing their time, gifts, talents, and knowledge in the planting of Surf Church Viana, which started in July 2018. Folks are invited to Nuno and Gila’s home for a meal together, a time of worship and a conversation about who Jesus was and is, and the grand invitation he gave to all! They also enjoy time on the beach together surfing, skim boarding, kicking a football, and engaging in other “beachy” activities.
They seek to be an intimate but open community, learning together to enjoy the Lord in every area of life.
