Why JOCUM Nova?

We are located in the municipality of Nova Laranjeiras, that's why the name. Between Guarapuava and Cascavel, just at 2:30hs from the Iguazu Falls and the borders between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina, our base offers a quiet and safe environment for you to learn from the Lord and start your journey in the nations.

In a territory of 23 hectares, with streams running through the middle of the property, water directly from the fountain and a very green land, our base is a true paradise.

Our History

A land purchased by the Methodist church in 1955 for missionary work, but getting no candidates to do so, it became a forgotten property. Late in the 1960s, German missionaries from the mission of "determined Christianity" decided to buy the land and start their work for Bible translation and church planting among the Kaygangs and Guaranis, as well as education, health programs and income generation. After many years of serving and doing wonderful work with many fruits, most missionaries retired and the mission changed its work to other regions of the country.

The desire of the German brothers to see this place still being used to magnify and honor the name of Jesus remained, and the mission of determined Christianity looked for YWAM Monte das Águias to know if we would have interest in the place and continue the missionary work from here. One of the missionaries, already born in Brazil, contacted us to take the property and start a YWAM base. The generosity of the German missionaries in giving us their missionary base, where lives have been transformed and sweat and blood spilled to clear the land and to build our beautiful campus, was something that encouraged us a lot and now we are honored to be chosen to continue the work in a " Holly Land".

You will be entering into a "sanctified land" where many brothers literally gave their lives for the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus. YWAM is honored to inherit something that has glorified the name of our God. We hope to continue in the footsteps of these pioneers and heroes who have opened borders for the nations of the earth. This place was reserved by the Lord for missionary work long ago.
