From Eastern Europe to the World

Equip national partners in Eastern Europe to become missionary senders.

Eastern European churches are ready to take the gospel to unreached peoples and places. IMB personnel in Eastern Europe are developing missionary-sending awareness and prayer networks among national leaders and churches to encourage, equip, and engage national partners to make the leap from being missionary receivers to missionary senders.

Your gift will help national pastors experience cross-cultural missions, seeing the need with their own eyes and recognizing how their countrymen can reap a harvest of souls around the world. Gifts to this opportunity also will underwrite the cost of Bible school courses for missionaries in training. Give today to help Eastern European believers carry the gospel to many unreached peoples.

More than 1,000 Russians attend trainings in 2020-2021!

Thank you for your generous support of our project, “From Eastern Europe to the World.” Your support is crucial to the success God is giving us as we train and send global missionaries from Eastern Europe to all corners of the world. We have made good progress during worldwide COVID lockdowns with our national partners from Eastern Europe. Here are some of the things that are happening. More than 1,000 Russians attended mobilization/training events in 2020-2021 A main topic of the event was encouraging these brothers and sisters to serve among hard-to-reach peoples (10/40 Window) where Americans have difficulty gaining visas and access to the people groups. Six students from seminaries and Bible colleges across Ukraine gathered in June 2021 for training in demographic mapping. The goal was to map an area of the country where significant numbers of Muslims are reported to live. First, the students were trained in techniques to verbally gather information and enter the data into an online app. Then, they went out into the towns and villages for eight days and were able to verify that significant numbers of Muslims reside in this part of the country and that new villages have developed, which are not in the government’s data. Our national partners will use this information to develop a practicum program that offers practical experience in ministry to Muslims before missionary candidates leave Ukraine. This training will enhance local outreach to the Muslims living in the mapped areas and ease transition stress for those who serve the Lord in other places in the world. In September 2021, more than 80 handpicked pastors and top Baptist Union leaders will come from all over Ukraine to attend a special conference on mobilizing their congregations to call out and support cross-cultural missionaries. They also will be challenged to reach the more than 80,000 international students who study in Ukraine each year. Most of these international students are from 10/40 Window countries or Africa. Without your generosity, these training events and programs could not exist. Thank you for catching the vision God has given our IMB team to raise up and send global missionaries from Eastern European countries. By God’s grace, these countries that once had few believers have transformed into mission-sending churches and missionaries called to serve our risen Savior among unreached peoples. These brothers and sisters need solid equipping and care to be ready to engage unreached peoples in places with hard or rocky soil. Your partnership and support are preparing them and bolstering them as they go. Thank you!

Location

European Peoples

With 810 million people, 51 sovereign states and 200 spoken languages, Europe is rich in diversity and character. These distinct cultures create a continent of global influence through language, politics, finance, fashion, and food. Though diverse, the peoples of Europe do have one thing in common—more than 98% do not follow Jesus.

Instead of seeing Europe’s decidedly post-Christian culture as a hindrance, IMB teams see the potential of what God wants to do on and through this influential continent. Not only do Europeans need the hope of the gospel, making it a primary place for ministry, but the global reach of its cities also makes it a strategic place as well. Immigrants comprise more than 15% of the population of gateway cities such as London, Paris, Madrid and Vienna.

Through dreaming big and taking faith-filled risks, IMB teams are connecting with European nationals, sharing the gospel and training local leaders. Their aim is to develop strong local leadership in every city and province who will lead biblically faithful and reproducing churches. Churches that plant new healthy churches will send the gospel to the nations of the world from every borough, town and village of the beautifully diverse continent of Europe.
