Douglas Goncalves, born and raised in Brazil, he grew up in a home with separated parents and unbelievers, not knowing anything about God. One day, when he was a teenager, his friends invited him to play soccer in a church gymnasium and on that day and the following weeks he heard the wonderful truths about the gospel of Jesus Christ, from the pastors leading the soccer scrimmages, where he says: “The truth of that book opened my heart and the Spirit of God gave me faith to understand that I was living a life far away from my Creator and I was denying a life close to Him. I heard for the first time that Someone loved me and demonstrated that by dying and assuring that love by conquering death rising, for my mistakes and inviting me to his family with open arms. I could no longer hold on in a life of lies and emptiness, on one of those weeks in 2003 I starting living for God’s glory and He gave me a love for His book, and church and the world mission to make disciples of every nation”. Douglas graduated from Unisinos University, in Sao Leopoldo, Brazil with a degree in Physical Education (2014), while he was in college he worked as a youth and assistant pastor in Feitoria Baptist church, for almost 7 years (the church which he got saved and was a member). In December 2015, he married Lacey Willis. Lacey is a member of WBC and met him on a mission trip to Brazil in 2011.
