Missionary Education - Gospel Training in Europe

Support the ongoing training of IMB missionaries and their families in a rapidly changing Europe so they are equipped, encouraged, and empowered in the missionary task.
For more than 175 years, IMB missionaries have been sharing the gospel all over the world. While the Great Commission remains the same, the world around us is rapidly changing. Our personnel are engaging all countries of Europe after a global lockdown and during a region-altering war. The instability and isolation missionaries have experienced in recent years have highlighted the need for ongoing support and training for our missionary families to stay healthy and focused on the work to which God has called them. Your gift will enable IMB missionaries in Europe to gather together as families (children included) to receive further training and support to help them thrive on the field.   

The EURO training team serves more than 400 missionaries and their families to reinforce a healthy understanding of

  • -their identity in Christ and as missionaries  
  • -a biblical vision to see local stewardship of the missionary task
  • -ways to create a healthy culture in their teams and work
  • -biblical strategies that match the needs of their local field

We train the missionary teams through in-person training events, online networks, cohorts, and continuing education courses. It takes more than $250 per missionary per day for in-person training events (about six annually). We bring the whole family to these events so that our children and teens can receive the love and support they need from a community that understands them as TCKs (third culture kids).

Generous supporters like you help these events happen through your prayer and giving. Partner with us today to equip and sustain your missionaries in Europe, enabling them to spread the gospel effectively throughout this continent.

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.
