Our Beginning

CASA DO OLEIRO INTERNATIONAL APOSTOLIC MINISTRIES began in 1986 as the Brazilian Evangelical Church of Dallas by Dr. Antonio Carlos Bernardes Cerrutti De Oliveira.

Dr. Oliveira had a successful law practice in Brazil before moving to Dallas then, in 1985, he was faced with a great spiritual challenge. At the height of his political career he would have to choose to pursue success as an attorney and politician or to obey the voice of God. Upon receiving a formal invitation from Dr. WA Criswell of First Baptist Church of Dallas to immigrate with his family to the US Dr. Oliveira left Brazil to establish himself in the United States.             

Soon, Dr. Oliviera would walk in the calling God had for his life. Obeying the direction of the Holy Spirit, Dr. Oliviera would establish CASA DO OLEIRO INTERNATIONAL APOSTOLIC MINISTRIES. Through this ministry he would show so many the love of Jesus in tangible ways. Digging wells, building orphanages, establishing rehabilitation centers, and opening churches in many different countries around the world.

Today, Dr. Oliviera is founder and CEO of Casa do Oleiro Apostolic Ministries which impacts thousands of lives daily with the love of Jesus Christ.  He is a naturalized American citizen, married to Selma, father of four daughters Anne Gabrielle, Andressa Giuliana, Thalita Christina, and Michelle Nicole Jamile.

Our heart is that all men have the opportunity to know Jesus as their savior. Casa Do Oleiro is committed to share the Gospel and show love to others in practical and tangible ways. 

Whether building a church in the poorest parts of Brazil or digging wells so local families in India are able to have clean water, Jesus is always the focus.
