Anísio Rocha Chagas was a pastor and evangelist from Brazil. He made a significant contribution to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in the areas of communications, family, and public relations.

First Years

Anísio Rocha Chagas was born on April 17, 1928, in the city of Santa Maria do Salto, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.1 Son of André Chagas dos Santos and Ciolanda Rocha Chagas, both farmers.2 He was the third of eleven children.3 Anísio was born and grew up in a Catholic family. His grandmother, Pulquéria Maria da Silva, had dreamed that he would become a priest. During his childhood, Anísio contracted measles, a disease that almost took his life because where he lived didn´t have medical services.4

Anísio was illiterate until twelve years old, but he was very interested to learn. His mother first taught him the alphabet, and from then on he learned to read by his own determination. He really liked reading and culture.5 Sometime later, Anísio's father brought an ex-military man from Bahia, named José Freire, to the community. He was Anísio's first teacher.6 Anísio's father was interested in his son's education and took him to study in the city of Palestina Mineira, now Jordânia, a city located in the north of Minas Gerais State. In this city, there was a school that belonged to Benedito Odilson Profeta, a former Baptist pastor, anthropologist, writer, and teacher. Anísio studied there until he finished primary school. After finishing the course, there weren’t any schools nearby in which he could go further in his studies, so he spent ten years without additional schooling.7

Life and Ministry

After finishing primary school, Anísio was employed as salesman in the city of Santa Maria do Salto. Adventist Pastors Wendelin Heisner and José de Oliveira went to Santa Maria do Salto to have an evangelistic campaign. While there, they passed by the store where Anísio worked. Soon, the pastors observed his desire for knowledge and said they would send him a collection of fifty booklets of the Bible studies series "A Verdade" (The Truth). The studies helped Anísio to clarify his doubts about the Bible. He became a reader of the magazine "O Atalaia," that his friend lent him. Later, he read the book "O Raiar de Um Novo Dia" (The Dawn of a New Day), which had a lot of influence on his life. The books "The Story of Jesus" and "A Bomba Atômica e O Fim do Mundo" (The Atomic Bomb and the End of The World) awakened in him the desire to be a pastor even before becoming a member of the Adventist Church.8

His uncle, who developed cirrhosis of the liver due to his alcohol addiction, had to be taken to the city of São Lourenço, in southern Minas Gerais. After taking his uncle there, who ended up dying, he stayed in this city for twenty-one days. In São Lourenço, he met an Adventist named Arnaldo Schwantes who told him about Petrópolis Adventist Academy, located in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro State. In 1951 willing to go to back to school to continue his studies, he contacted Emmanuel Zorub, then president of Rio-Minas Gerais Mission, by mail. In addition, he contacted Pastor Jairo Júnior, through Petrópolis Adventist Academy and the Rio de Janeiro Conference by means of the addresses, Schwantes had given him. The pastors told him to come to the school. 9

He arrived at Petrópolis Adventist Academy on February 12, 1952, determined to be baptized. A few days later, on the 28th and 29th, he took the exams to enter Petrópolis Adventist Academy's Gymnasium (high school) and was approved. In the middle of the year, on June 21, he was baptized by Pastor Herbert Hoffman, the chaplain of the college. Anísio was the first member of his family to become a Seventh-Day Adventist.10 During his first vacation, he did student canvassing in the state of Rio de Janeiro. At the end of 1958, he finished technical high school in accounting at Petrópolis Adventist Academy.11

In 1959, he went to Brazil College (now Central Adventist University of São Paulo), in the city of São Paulo, wanting to study theology. During his vacations, he kept canvassing to pay for his studies, which ultimately resulted in a total of ten years as student canvasser. He would also visit his family in Minas Gerais, when he had the opportunity to do missionary and evangelistic work, since none of them were Adventists. Through his influence, seventy relatives accepted the Adventist message and were baptized.12 He graduated in theology on December 3, 1962.13

In one of those canvassing campaigns, he met Jurema Eny Monteiro. After four years of relationship and then engagement, they married on December 6, 1962 in the city of Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais.14 Jurema was a Bible instructor, teacher, and worked in children's ministry. From this union, three children were born: Jason, Silvano, and Susana, all of them born in the city of Recife, Pernambuco State.15

In 1963, Anísio entered denominational service as director of the publications department in the Northeast Brazil Mission, located in Recife. At the same time, he was also leading the Casa Amarela Adventist Church in Recife.16 In 1966 and 1967, he worked as pastor of Arruda Church, Recife, where he was ordained, on February 11, 1967.17 In 1968, he shepherded the Recife Central Adventist Church.18 The following year, he directed the departments of education, temperance, youth, and radio-TV of the Northeast Brazil Conference, where he stayed until around 1970.19 While working in these positions, he also contributed articles for the newspaper "O Comércio" (The Trade).20 During the time he was in the northeast, he began the construction of churches like São Lourenço da Mata, Beberibe, Camaragibe, and Recife Central, all of them in Pernambuco.21 In 1970, he was designated as director of public relations, temperance, and youth departments of Rio-Minas Gerais Conference.22 Later in 1970, Anísio went to work for the Brazil Conference. During his service in this field he made important contributions to an evangelism plan for Jews that created the Instituto da Herança Judaica (Institute of Jewish Inheritance), later influencing the project for Beth B'nei Tsion.23 In 1971 and 1972, he was speaker for a radio program designed for the Jewish community, called "Ouve, ó Israel" (Listen, O Israel). The program was recorded at Rio de Janeiro and was broadcast through Copacabana Radio.24

In the following year, 1973, he was called to be a Bible instructor and pastor at the Cruzeiro do Sul Adventist Academy Church and in the other churches around it. During his management of the construction of the Cruzeiro do Sul Adventist Academy Church, Vila Cristina and São Francisco de Paula Churches were planted.25 In 1977, he was transferred to Rio Grande do Sul Conference26 where he was in charge of communication, Sabbath School,27 ministerial,28 and Voice of Prophecy departments (1977).29 Also during the time he served in this field, he had the opportunity to baptize his own father, on November 1, 1980, in Minas Gerais.30 In 1980, Rede Brasil Sul de Comunicações (South Brazil Communication Network), operated Gaúcha TV (no longer in business) in Rio Grande do Sul. Gaúcha TV gave the Adventist Church three minutes of its schedule weekly to broadcast the program "Encontro com a Vida" (Encounter with Life), presented by Anísio. The program premiered on May 9, 1980, and after a few months was increased to five minutes weekly.31 In the city of Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, he wrote many articles for Jornal Zero Hora (Zero Hour Newspaper).32

In the midst of 1981, he was appointed to be the pastor of the Brasília Central Church, Federal District.33 In 1982, the program "Encontro com a Vida" started transmission from Brasília, through Tropical TV, and programming reached the states of Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná, and Goiás.34 During this time, he founded the Asa Norte Church.35 He stayed in this field until the end of 1982.36 In 1983 he moved to Santa Catarina, the field where he worked for the longest period of his ministry. In the Santa Catarina Conference, he was director of the Communications Department (1983-1992),37 Personal Ministries (1983-1985),38 Sabbath School (1983-1985),39 ADRA,40 Religious Freedom (1985-1992),41 Evangelism,42 Temperance (1986-1991),43 Family Ministries,44 Civic Duties,45 Stewardship,46 and as an associate in the Ministerial Department (1988-1992).47

He made a significant contribution to the promotion of Adventism through the media. In 1983, the television program "Uma Palavra Amiga" (A Friendly Word), started transmission from Florianópolis, Santa Catarina by Barriga Verde TV. The program was supported by many religious denominations. Pastor Anísio Chagas was presenter for the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.48 Later, in 1989, this same broadcasting station premiered the show "Gotas de Fé" (Drops of Faith), which Anísio produced and presented. The program was broadcast on Fridays and Saturdays, a little before noon and had a duration of one minute.49 The program is still broadcast today by the Catarina TV. It still lasts one minute and is broadcast from Mondays to Fridays in the morning.50 In 2016, the program stopped being produced and now broadcasts reruns.51 As director of the Communication Department of the Santa Catarina Conference, he was a correspondent for Revista Adventista (Brazilian Adventist Review)52

In Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, he obtained a press card and became a member of the Associação Catarinense de Imprensa (Santa Catarina Press Association).53 In the health area, as director of the Temperance Department, he created the PARE project in 1990, which stands for Point of Support and Recovery, that was intended to prevent alcoholism, smoking and drugs in the community. Willing to obtain help and financial assistance, he made an agreement with Legião Brasileira de Assistência (Brazilian Legion of Assistance).54 After almost ten years in Santa Catarina, in 1993 he was invited to work in Rio de Janeiro again, this time as Voice of Prophecy's Communication and Marketing director.55

Final Years

Anísio Chagas retired on March 1, 1994, while working for Brazilian Voice of Prophecy in Rio de Janeiro.56 After his retirement, he received three invitations to continue working. He accepted one to be chaplain of the Golden Cross Metropolitan Hospital at Méier, Rio de Janeiro.57 The following year, 1995, Santa Catarina Conference invited him again to return to the field, working there as departmental director of ADRA58, communications59, family ministries60 and religious liberty.61 In 1996, he started writing a column of family counseling in the Revista Adventista (Brazilian Adventist Review), that continued until 2001.62 Because of his advanced age, he had to stop working.63 Nevertheless, he continued working in some projects for a while, such as the programs "Gotas de Fé" (Drops of Faith) and "Análise do Fato" (Analysis of the Fact), the last one broadcast by Florianópolis Novo Tempo Radio.64 Finally, he stopped presenting these programs in 2016 and moved with his wife to the city of Indaial, in the countryside of the state of Santa Catarina.65

Anísio Rocha Chagas, died on April 4, 2019 in the city of Indaial, Santa Catarina, Brazil.66
