The Aveys

Converted at age 16 from reading a tract distributed at a rock concert, Gordon felt God’s leading into full-time Christian service while in high school. He met and married Annie while both were attending Arlington Baptist College in Texas. God used the influence of several missionaries to impact the Avey’s for foreign missions. During a missions conference, they answered the call of a Brazilian pastor for someone to come to Brazil where they ministered from 1977-1989 in evangelism, church planting and leadership development ministries.

After further studies at Winebrenner Theological Seminary in Findlay, OH, the Aveys returned to southern Brazil in 1994 with CGGC Global Reach Ministries to train Brazilian nationals and coordinate a new church planting thrust. Under their leadership, the ministry has expanded to three Brazilian states.
