David Vaughan is the pastor of Evangelical United Methodist Church in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He first traveled to Brazil as part of a conference mission team in 2011 and has returned several times to learn, serve, and grow alongside the faithful believers of the Brazil Methodist Church. Among the highlights of David's time in Brazil are preaching from the mosh pit during a service at a drug rehabilitation center near Curitiba, introducing the very American custom of cold pizza for breakfast to people in Recife, and getting so lost during a morning run in Belo Horizonte that he missed a meeting with several bishops. That was the day he vowed to learn Portuguese...and buy a map!

David is eager to share his passion for Brazil with your class, club, or congregation, and he's available anytime to help you get involved in this partnership. You can contact him at (434) 825-3542 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
