In the beginning of 1990 a charismatic student from Universidade Federal de Viçosa (Federal University of Viçosa), said to have had a dream of seeing the university full of Jesus doctrine while he was praying in his bedroom. At Seara of 94 (Viçosa RCC Carnival Camp), he organized a seminary named RCC and University where he showed the pray groups first ideas in the university. This is the initial landmark of the Grupo de Oração Universitário, which are presented all over the country with more than 700 GOUs in a lot of private and public universities, and it is already present in some Latin American countries.
