Executive Director of Edicoes Vida Nova (New Life Publishing). Our mission is to promote and publish God’s truth for the edification of His churches and their leaders. Vida Nova publishes with a ministry vision committed to the inerrancy of Scriptures, the sovereignty of God and the sufficiency of Christ for salvation.
Pray that church leaders will be faithful in their walk with God, uncompromising in their ministry and focused on the eternal rewards of God’s kingdom instead of the temporal rewards of this life!
Luci was born in Brazil and met Ken when he first went to Brazil as a missionary. They have ministered in Brazil in the areas of church revitalization, theological education, children’s ministry and publishing. Beginning in Manaus, in the heart of the Amazon, they transitioned to rural northeast Brazil and then later to the mega-city of San Paulo.
Ken and Luci work together at Vida Nova, a Christian publishing house, located in Sao Paulo. Vida Nova has a rich history of ministry. Founded in 1962 to provide theological resources for training pastors and leaders, God has sustained and multiplied its ministry which now offers Bibles, a wide variety of reference works and numerous Christian resources across the age and interest spectrum. With a catalog of over 600 titles Vida Nova has become one of the leading Christian publishers with an active voice in the Christian community as it seeks to influence the theological landscape and address current issues facing the churches in Brazil.
Early in Ken’s ministry a love was developed for training leaders, especially those in rural areas who would be best served with an extension seminary model. He teaches at two extension seminaries in the areas of Bible interpretation, expository preaching and Bible exposition.
Ken and Luci have three grown children. Melissa and Mark are living in the States. Mike returned to Brazil after graduating college and now works with us at the publishing house.
