Raimundo Edson Monteiro He was born in1951 in the city of Baependi, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Married to Maria Celeste Nogueira Monteiro and the father of 5 children, and grandfather to 15 grandchildren.
When he was a kid he lived a simple life. Even with no toys to play with, he received much love from his parents, grandparents and family. On a certain day of despair, he truly came to know Jesus, in a gathering where he was gifted his very first bible.
Diving into the words of that Bible his life began to change. In 1977 his long anticipated day came where he was baptized under the waters, professing his faith.
Some time went by and he became responsible for the youth group at his local church, followed by deaconship and treasury.
He had no interest in becoming a pastor and really, he wanted to have any other responsibility besides being a pastor. In obedience he followed his calling he was ordained pastor in 1982 and began his ministry in his home city of Baependi.
Two years later he was given an opportunity to work in a company in Canada. In preparation, he moved to Rio de Janeiro and stayed there until his documentation for travel was authorized. In 1989, he arrived in Canada to attend to the opportunity given, but as his pastoral calling spoke louder, he dedicated himself in the preaching of the gospel and this was the beginning of his ministry work in Toronto, Canada.
And so, World Mission Centre Church was birthed on July 31, 1996.
