Behind the story
From Kate Shellnutt: This week, I edited a story written by a reporter in Brazil, which is something I probably won’t be doing much anymore. As we expand our CT Global team, we’ve just brought on a Latin American editor who’s based in Brazil: Franco Iacomini, a veteran journalist who has also worked as a church planter, missionary, and professor. (Before officially joining our staff, he wrote a story for CT on the global reach of Brazilian megachurches.)
“Having a journalist who is an eyewitness in a part of the world with one of the most robustly growing evangelical communities will offer readers a much closer and fuller look at the work God is doing there and give us much to learn from,” said CT’s global managing editor Morgan Lee.
Franco joins a crew of fellow Brazilians who have been working behind the scenes at CT, including our long-time designer Rick Szuecs, translator Marisa Lopes, and global project manager (and social media maven) Mariana Albuquerque.
