Passion for church planting

At 17 years of age, I knew that I desired to plant churches in Europe. Some 40 years have passed and that is still my greatest joy.

Many different skill-sets are required to reach out and adopt another culture - a few of which are flexibility, humor and a never-give-up attitude.

Within these pages you will find some of our stories, see some of the sites that we enjoy as we travel to encourage those in the task of planting churches in Europe, plus visit those that our church has sent out around the world. May you also be inspired to be passionate about serving Jesus and others.

Arriving in early 1983, Keith and Debbie have witnessed wholesale changes in Germany. Political changes, the positioning of troops outside the border for the first time since the second World War, the reunification of East and West Germany following the fall of communism and the Berlin Wall, the implementation of the european-wide common currency are external forces that have brought the society to rethink it's role globally.

Spiritually the nation is firmly secular, further distancing itself from the roots of the reformation. Society has become postmodern; truth has become relative. Only 10% of the population attends church regularly.

This is the challenge facing church-planters in Germany, in Europe as a whole. And yet conditions have never appeared brighter. The challenges are great, but it is possible to establish New Testament congregations.
