Caraguá Baptist Seminary is devoted to providing evangelical seminary instruction to under-served pastors and church leaders in Brazil.  Caraguá Baptist Seminary Inc. a 501 (c)(3) partners with Advance International to provide accreditation of its courses and a Pastoral Ministries Certificate from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.  Caraguá Baptist Seminary focuses on taking the seminary experience to those that are unable to obtain formal seminary training because of geographical and fiscal constraints.  We provide face-to-face courses in rural communities and small towns where the birthing of evangelical churches is outpacing the knowledge to effectively to teach the truth of God’s word.

Our first set of four courses were taught in three locations, Caraguatatuba, Garça, and Orlândi a in the State of São Paulo with 154 registered students. Our largest class of 84 was in Orlándia, a rural town in northern São Paulo. Through these students the seminary impacted 58 churches in 19 cities in three Brazilian states. Ultimately 6,104 church members were blessed with the teaching of our student pastors and church leaders.

The Seminary maintains communications with its U.S. supporters through its U.S. website and E-News and with our students through our Brazilian website and Portuguese email. The Seminary’s Facebook page is used for both those in the U.S. and Brazilian. For more information on the Caraguá Baptist Seminary go to our U.S. website at
