Nic Billman was called by God to be a full-time missionary to Brazil and he and his family moved to Brazil in 2010. Nic and Rachael Billman are the founders and directors of Shores of Grace Ministries, a worship and missionary ministry currently headquartered in Recife, Brazil. 

Their focus is setting those in prostitution free and walking them through restoration; taking the love of the Father to the poor and the broken and helping them see their true value; and equipping and serving the church in Brazil; to live a life of compassion and power where miracles and healing follow us everywhere they go, just as they did with Jesus. 

As of this writing they have opened one rescue home for girls, started two street churches, dug one well, held numerous Fathers Love Banquets, helped prostitutes leave the streets (and will have opened a rescue home for prostitutes by July) and cant wait to see what else Father has in store! Nic and Rachael have been leading worship together since they were 13 years old.
