The Kingdom of God is understood best in terms of family. In the Garden, the Triune God created man in their image of perfect love and unity. God’s promise to Abraham was that his descendant would bring forth one big family, more immense than the stars of the sky. When Jesus came to redeem creation, he came as a child- as a Son- to reveal the Father. Through the Holy Spirit, all who believe in Jesus receive the Spirit of Adoption. Ministry is not solely defined in the activities of pastors or missionaries; ministry is the activity of God’s family which has received the message of reconciliation and now shares that message with the world.
In this workshop the Billman family will be sharing stories and ministering together while imparting the Spirit of Adoption which is the basis for their ministry in Brazil.
Nic and Rachael Billman are lovers of God and lovers of people! They fully embrace their journey with the Father and daily surrender their lives over to Him, because He is a good Father! They have been married since September of 2000 and they have four children, Christian, Forrest, Leila and Cássia. In 2010 they moved to Brazil and founded Shores of Grace.They had been in pastoral positions in local churches in Pennsylvania and Texas for nine years before being called to Brazil as missionaries. They have been leading worship together since they were 13 years old and have led worship and ministered all over the world. They have written over 120 songs and have released twelve albums. They love worshipping with their children in their living room just as much as they love leading thousands of people in worship. Both of their fathers are United Methodist pastors and they have spent most of their lives in the United Methodist Church. Before being called to full-time ministry Nic worked in human resources and finance for a Fortune 500 Company in the Philadelphia area for six years and attended Ursinus University and Delaware Valley College majoring in Psychology.
Nic has also authored a book called “Between the Flowers and the Broken” and has written chapters for two other books compiled by Patricia King “For Their Tears I Died” and “Worship the King”. Their children are actively involved in their ministry and are excited about what God is doing in Brazil! They love to follow their parents around and pray for people and they often ask if they can pray for those who are sick in grocery stores, parks and churches. All four of their kids list Heidi Baker as their hero and their mom and dad as their favorite music!
