Is Europe in need of the gospel?
Europe is where the reformation was unleashed, where the doctrines of grace exploded onto the public arena where revival after revival broke out. From this continent ships sailed carrying men and women with their Bibles and the faith that the Lord would reach the nations. They saw bold daring gospel expansion across the world.
But now Europe finds itself spiritually dark and cold with church attendance dramatically falling. Secularism has a far greater influence than the gospel. Now Europe is a context of pressing need, massive opportunities and urgent, gospel importance.
In this sorry situation the gracious Lord has not stopped his work. We see and hear stories of the gospel growing and going out, stories of hope and inspiration, stories of churches taking risks for the gospel and stories of people coming to Christ.
Acts 29 Europe is all about planting churches, planting communities of light right across the continent of Europe to see many more people come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. All for the fame and glory of Jesus.
To make this happen we need to create awareness of the need and opportunities that exist within Europe. Perhaps you are feeling led to pray and support the mission of God in Europe, perhaps you are exploring opportunities to serve current Acts29 churches through our internship programme, to be apart of a church planting team or to lead a church plant.
If that is you, then this is for you…
The Acts 29 Europe Discovery Team Programme
This programme will run from 1st July – 22nd July 2013.
This new initiative is open to all who want to understand the European context and to explore opportunities to better support, pray and resource Acts 29 churches in Europe. We hope it will be valuable also for those who are considering moving to Europe to plant churches to understand, test their calling and explore the where, how and when.
Through our Discovery Team Programme you will be exposed to what is happening in Europe by experiencing an urban church plant and a rural church plant in the UK, as well as the mainland Europe context. This will ensure you leave well informed about the European situation as a whole while gleaning a vast range of experiences and knowledge from planters on the ground.
Acts 29 Europe is eager to train and equip men to be able to plant more churches that will plant more churches. We also want to raise people up to be part of church planting core teams in the future. We need more people to help resource this mission and vision and this is why we are investing in the Discovery Team Programme. We view this as a key part of our vision to see Jesus proclaimed in all the villages, towns and cities of Europe.
