Notes of Condolence


With great regret, I received the news of the death of Pastor José Cavalcante, which took place on the night of this Monday, 18.

Pastor José Cavalcante was one of the pioneers of the Interstate Convention of the Assemblies of God of the Evangelization Service of the regions of the Tocantins and Araguaia rivers (Ciadseta). An example of a servant committed to the preaching of the good news of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, Pastor José Cavalcante leaves a unique legacy of a servant of God, as a preacher and author of several doctrinal and evangelistic literary works.

In this moment of farewell and mourning for Pastor José Cavalcante, I ask that the comfort of the Holy Spirit of God be present in the hearts of family, friends and the evangelical community, especially the Assemblies of God.

Wanderlei Barbosa
Governor of the State of Tocantins
