Thoughts from Bishop Francisco Montefusco.

I was blessed to hear Bishop Francisco Montefusco preach at the World Missions service of the Pentecostal Church of God's General Convention.

Bishop Montefusco's text:

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. - Genesis 1:28
  • Everything God created multiplies. Birds, Fish, Trees, and Men all multiply. Christians should multiply.
  • A young Brazilian approached Bishop Montefusco and said, "I want to pastor." Bishop Montefusco replied, "Where are your sheep?"
  • Brazilians are expected to multiply in their local church before going out.
  • Even church musicians are expected to have their own disciples.
Bishop Francisco Montefusco is the national bishop of the Pentecostal Church of God in Brazil.
