Church Planting

LTTN was founded as a local church that raised leaders to plant churches.  Today we have planted over 350 churches across Brazil through our partnership with SURGE.

Social Justice

Brazil is a country of strong contrasts.  The poor live side by side with the very wealthy.  Through each of our campuses we work daily in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, in the inner city streets with the homeless,  feeding the needy, providing job training and free psychological counselling to the poor.

Spiritual Justice

Feeding the body is always accompanied by feeding the soul and heart.  We see that feeding the body but neglecting the spirit is a true Spiritual Injustice.  Our campuses around Brazil are unashamed to share the gospel through action and giving but also through the word and prayer.

Story About Us

LTTN was founded in 2000 as a missions and church planting ministry focused on Brazil.  Since then we have planted over 350 partnering churches and our own church has grown to 5 campuses across Brazil.  We daily work with the poor in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and our thriving church reaches all levels of Rio society. 

Our Works

Since 2000 LTTN has partnered with SURGE Project and multiple local partners to plant over 350 churches across Brail.  We have also planted and thriving, giving, loving, 4 campus church that reaches many of the least reached areas of Brazil.  We have also planted a K-12 School, and a Publishing House.


“…Pastors Philip and Renee Murdoch … serve as one of the twelve directors of our Global 12 Project that is planting churches worldwide. Philip and Renee are working in … South America and are having tremendous effectiveness. They are … planting churches, primarily focusing on unreached and neglected areas.”
“I have known this couple for many years, and Philip functioned as chief of staff and administrator at our church for several years. I have never known a more dedicated, faithful and honest couple than Philip and Renee. Please consider them in your missions giving. Every penny you contribute will be well spent and administered. It will produce a great harvest of souls for which you will be richly rewarded in eternity.”
