Our Global Partner in Eastern Europe see to reach the student population and mobilize them to in turn reach others for Christ. Mark and Laura have been commissioned as missionaries 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.
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.
