Admirado and Celeste Chaguala
Serving in Africa Lusophone | Africa
Admirado and Celeste Chaguala serve as missionaries with the Church Of The Nazarene in Mozambique as the mission coordinators. They have two children, Noel and Shirley.
Admirado works in leadership development and church growth in the country of Mozambique as well as assisting the Field Strategy Coordinator across the Africa Lusophone Field (Angola, Cabo Verde, Guiné Bissau, Equatórial Guiné, Mozambique and São Tomé e Príncipe). Admirado was ordained an elder in the Church of the Nazarene in 2010.
Celeste serves as literature coordinator for the Africa Lusophone Field; her main responsibility is to resource pastors with ministerial material for discipleship as well as translating various resources in local languages.
Admirado served as NCM, Children’s Ministry, and SDMI Field Coordinator and also worked with Jesus Film Ministry in the country of Mozambique from 2004 to 2015.
Admirado and Celeste's passion is to see the development and growth of leaders at the national level who will lead the church in Mozambique to maturity and reach out to lost souls. Our positions require much travel and great wisdom, as we develop resources of evangelism and discipleship that are effective within our context.
Please pray that God will give their family strength, wisdom, and safety as they teach and preach the Good News of Christ in Mozambique.
Going Where the Church is Not Yet
Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
