Yearly conferences are held in the countries of Brazil, Portugal and Mozambique, gathering together pastors and church leaders ( 1,300 attendees in Brazil, 60 in Portugal, and 200 in Mozambique) for five days of intensive training and spiritual fellowship.
The conferences serve as a melting pot for national and international speakers and authors, whose collective teachings -- which by themselves have blessed so many lives outside the conference -- are served to edify and encourage those in attendance.
While the teachings themselves expound the truths advanced in FIEL's literature, they are taught in the context of a forum for similarly-impassioned church leaders to latch arms with one another, reinforcing these battle-weary soldiers for Christ..
The conferences are a lighthouse to pastors ministering in areas where many churches have mixed biblical teaching with the prosperity gospel and pragmatic methods.
Brazil is in its 26th year of hosting the pastor's conference, Mozambique is in its 12th, and Portugal is in its 11th.
Running alongside the pastor's conference is FIEL's college/career conference. The aim of this conference is to teach sound biblical truths to the next generation of spiritual leaders. Brazil is currently in is 9th year of hosting this conference.
Please join us in prayer for these conferences; that through them the Lord might bring living water, by way of teaching and encouragement, to thirsty pastors, church leaders and college students throughout the Portuguese-speaking nations of the world.
Below are some comments from Pastors who have attended the Fiel Conference:
"Since FIEL began having conferences in Portugal, my
colleagues and I have been stimulated by this precious help
in our understanding of the Sacred Scriptures."

"You have no idea what the conference meant in our lives. My
family is still in awe…For two weeks, I have been sharing with our
church about the theme of the conferences—the church wept."
—Pr. Cesar Teixeira - Brazil
"Our ministry gathered new strength after we came into contact with Fiel literature and conferences. I can convincingly affirm that we now have a new vision of the kingdom of God."
