Rev. Doug Leaman

Biblical Counseling & Project SOli Deo Gloria

PHOTO-2020-09-23-10-38-51

Born to missionary parents in the country of Brazil, Rev. Doug Leaman grew up in the Bible Presbyterian Church where his dad served as missionary and pastor for many years. After graduating from The Master's College in 1995, Doug worked in Brazil for almost a decade, during which time he married Leah. They learned about the language, culture, customs, and people of Brazil while developing a heart for ministering to Brazilian people. After 500 years of Roman Catholicism, spiritism, a growing secularism, rampant political corruption, and an evangelical world that is inundated with the latest fads from around the world, Brazil is in need of the winds of the Reformation.

Doug is an ordained minister of the gospel in the Bible Presbyterian Church. He has a Master of Divinity degree from Western Reformed Seminary and a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling from The Master's College as well as biblical counseling certification through NANC. His mission is to teach biblical counseling/discipleship and to preach the gospel as far and wide as the Lord will allow in cooperation with churches faithful to the gospel. The Lord has now blessed Doug and Leah with a family of seven boys.

Please pray for the Leamans.

Prayer Requests

Project Soli Deo Gloria, Brazil (Leaman)

November 2022

Thanking God for:

  • Our sons, Darius and Zayin, in the states working hard and serving the Lord.
  • The good events we have had at the Projeto Soli Deo Gloria this past semester.
  • Leah’s talents with the café and how that has blessed the project with needed resources.

     

 

Please Pray for:

  • The graduating class from the Soli Deo Gloria Institute of Technology & Theology and the next phase of their lives and ministry, especially those who will be working in a Muslim country.
  • The extra load at the project as the families who live and work on the project grounds will be taking vacation in December and January.
  • Brazil as it faces challenging days as the new president has a past marked by criminal conviction, including one of history’s biggest corruption scams just a few years back.
