Presbyterian Protestantism reached the region of Torre de Pedra in 1880 through the Presbyterian Church of Guareí, organized by Pedro Antonio de Cerqueira Leite, one of the first four pastors graduated in Brazil. In this study, we tried to find the reasons for the internalization and expansion of Presbyterian Protestantism in the hinterland and rural areas, twenty-one years after the establishment of the missionary Protestantism in our country. The explanation for this fact was investigated in several contexts: religious, economic, social and anthropological. Such contexts led us to observe the action of the first itinerant native Presbyterian minister of Brazil, the former priest José Manoel da Conceição; the Tropeirismo responsible for the settlement and the emergence of the Presbyterian Church in this region of São Paulo State; the sparsely theological framework of the Catholic Church in this period and region; and the receptivity of the rural redneck man. The Presbyterian Church, having appeared in Guareí, motivated by religious intolerance migrated, as a whole, to one of its neighborhoods, Torre de Pedra. This intolerance, present in the neighboring towns as Guareí and Porangaba - was absent in Torre de Pedra, a fact that has characterized it as a place of refuge sought by believers from Guareí and nearby villages. The Presbyterian Church of Brazil (IPB) and the Independent Presbyterian Church - emerged in a rural context, became the founder nucleus of a village that, in a differentiated manner, has emerged around Protestant churches, and not around the Catholic church. Protestantism in Torre de Pedra, emerged in a differentiated way and its unique presence, has observed and observable influences in its history. This study aimed to investigate those influences by movements of accommodation and distance when dealing with the natural and the supernatural, rites, habits, customs and culture.
