Nuno and Gila were both born in Viana do Castelo, Portugal. They have been married since 1999, and have two children, Leonor and Diogo. They lived and worked outside Portugal for 10 years, before returning from the Middle East in 2017, having felt the call of God to return to Portugal 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.
