Lauro and Rosane Castelli

Lauro and Rosane Castelli have been on the mission field for many years. They first received a ‘call’ for full time overseas mission when they were involved in Church ministry in Brazil (their home nation). They spent 10 years in India working amongst drug addicts and Aids victims moving from India to Belgium. I always remember Lauro – who has been a personal friend of mine for many years – describing the reaction of many of his supporting Churches when he shared this news ‘…why go to Belgium? They do not need missionaries, Belgium is a rich country!…’ The truth is that we, as Christians, are called to take the gospel to every nation of the world, and we must not lose sight of the need to reach the ‘lost’, whether materially poor or rich.

Belgium is often referred to as the ‘missionary graveyard’ it is a hard place to work. For example, Evangelical Christian Churches have only been recognised by the Belgium Government since around 2005, before that many Churches were classed as ‘cults’

Lauro and Rosane, are currently leading a Church planting initiative in the city of Liege – and we at One Church have a commitment to support the work that they are doing by sending various teams to get involved in all aspects of Church life, including: leadership development; prayer; preaching; and outreach. The Church plant is called ‘Go-Generation’ and has already grown from a handful of folk at the start of 2009 to currently over 60 people

In 2012 we ran our biggest ever mission trip, when we took a team of 85 people from One Church Gloucester to lead a weekend of Outreach and Ministry at Go Generation To find out more about what we did please watch the following video:
