Fundador

Foundation

The dreamer, creator and founder of Oasis is William Bacheller Junior (Bill), who, with Enoque Ozório de Faria (also founder), produced the first season, in July 2005.

In your skin, Pr. Bill and his wife Karina had already experienced the wear and tear and pressures of ministry in Trinidad and Tobago, which eventually led Bill down the difficult path of depression. Thanks to the Father, he received help and care.

Years later, advising the pastors of the Evangelical Christian Church of Brazil (ICEB) and the students of the Evangelical Christian Theological Seminary of Brazil (SETECEB), Pr. Bill saw the great need for care of God's children. They needed a place to rest – that seems obvious, but more than that, they needed a place where they could speak to listening, trustworthy ears, ears that would not judge or propagate what was shared, they needed careful professional observation that read between the lines and decipher silences and body signals, they needed help to detect key points related to deep issues and their true causes, they needed discoveries, insights and revelations from the Spirit, they needed assertive questioning and fired at the right time and they needed humble prayer, thoughtful referrals and possible solutions.

Pr. Bill knew there wasn't such a place... and so he decided that the Oasis would be that place!
