• We are John and Isabel Horton, sent out of the Pleasantview Baptist Church in Arlington, TX where Brother Jimmy McNeil is pastor. Since 1993 we've served in "Northern" Brazil as second generation, church planting missionaries. In 2018 God moved us to Arlington, TX where He has given me the privilidge of serving as "Assistant Mission Director" for the WBF Mission Agency. We work along side Brother Joey Bacon, the Mission Director, and a wonderful staff! Isabel and I want to be used of God to assist pastors and missionaries reach the lost for Christ!

  • Now FULLY INDIGINOUS, the Bible Baptist Institute of the North is a tool that has been used of God to help many local churches prepare the called of God for the Gospel ministry. 
  • Isa and I made a decision, when we first began our ministry in Brazil, never to turn our backs on the works God used us to start or to take part in, and we have decided to partner with them financially for as long as the Lord provides. Please pray for the Bible Baptist Institute of the North as they seek to serve local Churches and the Lord in "Northern" Brazil!
  • Isa and I believe that a good, solid, local Church ran Bible Institute is key to the preparation of those called of God into the Gospel ministry. As a part of our ministry through WBF Missions, our desire is to be of assistance to pastors and missionaries in this area. 


  • For over 25 years. Isabel and I have worked and directed dozens of youth and childrens camps in Brazil. 
  • Camps are a blessing and a tremendous tool to local churches. Many children, young people and adults have come to know the Lord as Savior and decisions made for Christ as well, through this ministry, including my wife Isabel! Isa and I partner with them financially as well, for as long as the Lord provides.
  • Our desire is to be of assistance to local churches and missionaries with the experience God has given us in starting family camps




  • Pray for us as we seek God's face in ways to serve Him as we faithfully serve in the WBF Mission Agency.
  1. Starting a portuguese speaking work in our area.
