Meet the Esperança Viva Group, an instrument of evangelization and extension of the Farm of Hope present in Brazil and in the world!

“The Esperança Viva Group is actually an update, it is the memory of what was the beginning of the Farm”, with these words Nelson tells the story of GEV.


In 2020 the Esperança Viva Group celebrates 20 years of existence; and to celebrate this significant date, a very special moment was prepared.

In a relaxed and very rich chat with one of the founders of Fazenda da Esperança, Nelson Giovanelli, who tells us about the birth and development of GEV.

Follow the entire interview and get to know this great experience of living the Word in the midst of society.

Open a GEV

To open a GEV in your city, it is necessary to: define responsible and collaborators to coordinate the meetings; have a room in a parish to hold meetings, which must be weekly, with a fixed date and time; participate in meetings with the central team, as well as being available to participants and people who need support.

Monitoring and guidance for opening new groups are carried out by the Regional Officers. For more information, contact the GEV Service Center.
