Dr. Daniel Bonfim

Daniel Bonfim

Vice-President of Daniel Bonfim Mission for the last 35 years, Dr. Daniel is married to Rosangela. They have one son, Daniel Jr, a business man in Niteroi. Dr. Daniel understands the needs of the mission and comprehends the governing laws of conducting ministry under a non-profit permit. The mission has its own accountant and follows all the rules of employment. The red tape in Brazil is long and difficult. Dr. Daniel has been a powerful asset in facilitating our ministry and activities within the hills of St. Barbara. He is the son of Rev. Daniel Bomfim, now deceased and Noemi B. Bomfim, also deceased. Dr. Daniel is a leader in family ministries and speaks throughout the state of Rio de Janeiro in congresses and seminars.

Kathy Fallon

Hi my name is Kathy Fallon. I joined Rick Bonfim Ministries back in 2017 and now serve 9 months out of every year as a missionary at the Missao in Santa Barbara, Brazil. My roles at the Mission vary, but one of the most fun projects has been to begin a children’s ministry, which the Lord has grown over the last year! I also double as RBM’s graphic designer. It’s an honor to serve the Lord!
