Rev. Doug Leaman

Biblical Counseling & Project SOli Deo Gloria

Leaman family 2019 (sm web)

Born to missionary parents in the country of Brazil, Rev. Doug Leaman grew up in the Bible Presbyterian Church where his dad served as missionary and pastor for many years. After graduating from The Master's College in 1995, Doug worked in Brazil for almost a decade, during which time he married Leah. They learned about the language, culture, customs, and people of Brazil while developing a heart for ministering to Brazilian people. After 500 years of Roman Catholicism, spiritism, a growing secularism, rampant political corruption, and an evangelical world that is inundated with the latest fads from around the world, Brazil is in need of the winds of the Reformation.

Doug is an ordained minister of the gospel in the Bible Presbyterian Church. He has a Master of Divinity degree from Western Reformed Seminary and a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling from The Master's College as well as biblical counseling certification through NANC. His mission is to teach biblical counseling/discipleship and to preach the gospel as far and wide as the Lord will allow in cooperation with churches faithful to the gospel. The Lord has now blessed Doug and Leah with a family of seven boys.

Please pray for the Leamans.

Prayer Requests

Project Soli Deo Gloria, Brazil (Leaman)

September 2020

Thanking God for:

  • The ability to get a flight back to Brazil at the beginning of September.
  • The safe trip driving around America, the wonderful body of Christ that we were able to visit, and the opportunities to communicate about the ministry in Brazil.
  • The completion of the writing project on sanctification for the International College of Reformed Theology (Fitref) and that God would use it for His glory.

 

Please Pray for:

  • The pastor who will be visiting with us and staying for prayer, encouragement, and strengthening after his wife’s long fight with cancer.
  • The “Biblical Counseling and the Local Church” module for pastors and missionaries on the Soli Deo Gloria grounds at the end of September.
  • The return of full and free public worship in Brazil as the state governors have put in place excessively severe measures.
