Thiago Goncalves moved to the United States from Brazil at age seventeen. He studied B.S., Exercise Science at Bryan College, TN and M.A. Theology at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, TX and proceeded to work as a mentor and soccer coach at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, Dallas Christian College and eventually FC Dallas. Passionate about soccer and ministry, the move to Dallas, TX was a natural fit. With encouragement from his wife Stephanie and a driven confidence in the call of God he founded in 2008 All Nations Soccer Ministries (ANS Ministries) and has since reached twenty-one nations and approximately eighty thousand people with the Gospel message. In his free time, Thiago loves to play with his three kids Hannah (7 yrs), Gracie (3 yrs) and Levi (1 yr). He also run conferences for church leadership around the globe with the purpose to encourage and equip leaders to fulfill their God given callings for life and ministry. Grateful for his local church and fellow denominational ministers, Thiago currently hold ministerial licenses as an Evangelist with the Assemblies of God, USA.
Fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish Thiago has served as an international speaker in schools, sports team events, government buildings, gospel crusades, conferences, church meetings, and revivals in the USA and twenty different nations worldwide. With fourteen years of experience as a public speaker Thiago is able to connect with people of many different backgrounds and cultures and encourage them to fulfill their God given destiny.
Thiago has found a gift in leadership from the early years in College where he would lead a group of fifty plus students who meet weekly to worship and find encouragement in the word of God. His background in competitive soccer and swimming enriched his knowledge base and helped him to develop a very effective and unique approach to leadership that have allowed him to connect and influence dozens of men and women of all different ages mentoring and helping them find their confidence to face the everyday challenges of life and most importantly find their callings and God given destinies.
Thiago has written a leadership seminar designed for the leadership of the local church on the topic of "Spiritual Authority." The seminar is designed to encourage key leaders to identify themselves with the Great Commission and the ministry of healing and deliverance. The seminar is written in English, Portuguese and Spanish and have been ministered to over five hundred leaders serving in the local churches in USA, Brazil, Tanzania, Nigeria and Cuba.
