Joe and Rachel Clarke

Joe and Rachel Clarke work with the Grupo Bíblico Universitário (GBU) – the Portuguese student Christian movement. They seek to evangelise and disciple university students and equip them for future Christian ministry.

Portugal has a population of almost 11 million people yet less than 100,000 attend an evangelical church. Within Portuguese universities there are few professing believers and the Christian student movement is small. There is a great need to develop the GBU’s work so that Christian students can reach out to fellow students with the gospel. 

Joe trains and supports the GBU student leaders and helps run evangelistic events and courses. He and Rachel both study the Bible one-to-one with a number of students. Alongside this, Rachel is a full-time mum to Beth, Hannah, Joshua and Timothy.
