Since the fall of Communism, spirituality has been on the rise in Eastern Europe. People are seeking something to believe in and are open to all kinds of spiritual influences, good or bad. This openness, and Eastern Europe’s unpredictable political future have evoked a deep sense of urgency in the members of our team.
As a church we are sending Mark and Laura to Eastern Europe to equip foreign college students in church planting. Mark and Laura have extensive experience in cross-cultural work in the region. Through discipleship and biblical training, the goal is to empower students towards a concrete vision to plant churches in their home countries. The shared linguistic and political heritage between countries in the region provides exciting opportunities for strategic connections for church planting.
