Our Pastor

Rev. Rodrigo Assis da Silva

Pastor Rodrigo was born and raised in Santos-SP, Brazil. He is an ordained Baptist minister and holds a BA in Theology from the Theological Baptist College of Sao Paulo and a MA in Religious Education from King's College London. Pastor Rodrigo worked at the Brazilian Air Force for almost five years, prior to going into full time Baptist ministry. In the first years of his ministry, he had the opportunity to serve God in three different continents: as a trainee pastor in Brazil (Perdizes Baptist Church) and as a missionary in Mozambique (Project Tent of Peace) and Wales (NEXO Project).

From 2008 pastor Rodrigo started serving churches in England, first as an assistant minister at Emmanuel Baptist Church Thamesmead and later as an interim pastor at Woolwich Central Baptist Church; both multicultural churches in Southeast London. Having received and accepted the call to be the new pastor at Bethel IBC in Frankfurt, Pastor Rodrigo moved to Frankfurt in 2013.

Pastor Rodrigo has a strong conviction of his calling to serve international, multi-cultural and age-diverse churches, encouraging people to grow in their relationship with God and reaching out to others who need to know the Saviour and experience the love of Jesus.
