About Preaching Minister Gordon Dabbs
Gordon and Ila Dabbs have been married for 15 years and have two beautiful children, Claudia (11) and David (8). Gordon was born and raised in Neosho, Missouri and Ila is a Texas native who spent much of her childhood in Enid, Oklahoma.
The Dabbs have been working with the Victory Church of Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the past ten years. Since planting the church, they have seen it grow into a dynamic congregation with a weekly attendance of 200 and a maturing Brazilian leadership.
Gordon's academic credentials include graduating from Oklahoma Christian University, completing an M.A. in Ethics and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Oklahoma, and an M.A. in Biblical Interpretation from LCU.
Ila holds an M.A. in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma.
Since moving to Rio, Gordon has spoken at a number of international conferences, hosted a weekly television program, and been a key leader in Rio's flagship mission project. Gordon has a special burden for disadvantaged children and has developed relationships between the Victory Church and two orphanages in Rio de Janeiro.
With a passion for developing those around him, for preaching practical messages, and for reaching out to the weak and hurting, Gordon believes that God has called his family to begin a powerful partnership with the Prestoncrest family.
