Rev. Maicon Schieferdecker serves as a church planter in three locations, Salto, Chapicuy and Paysandú in northern Uruguay. He leads worship services and Bible classes in a new worship facility in Chapicuy and a rented storefront in Salto. Work on the new mission in Paysandú is in the beginning stages.
Pastor Schieferdecker had planned to become a math teacher, but friends encouraged him in his life-long desire to be a pastor. He graduated from the Lutheran University of Brazil and was ordained in 2006. For the next 15 years, he served congregations in Brazil. In 2021 he was called by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil to serve as an Alliance Missionary in Uruguay. Pastor Maicon welcomed the challenge of planting new churches in three locations.
Rev. Schieferdecker and his bride, Jéssica, live far from family and friends and more than 300 miles from the nearest missionary. For some, the isolation would be crippling, but this young missionary family uses the isolation as a time to grow stronger together. They find joy in simple pleasures, chiefly playing with their young daughters, Livia and Talita.
