For many North Americans, Europe is not on the radar when the idea of “mission work” comes to mind. The reality is that God’s plan to restore the world encompasses the entire globe – not just Third World countries. In Europe, we’ve observed that the institutional church often struggles to connect with a society that sees church rituals and practices as antiquated and irrelevant.
However, the innate sense that there is something greater at work in this world remains strong, and the Church, as a gathering of students of Jesus Christ, is in the midst of a metamorphosis. In Spain, the potential energy stored in emerging Anabaptist communities scattered throughout the country has the ability to start a chain reaction of Christ-focused, radical discipleship that can transform the world.
We simply seek to partner with these communities, offer our gifts, experience and time, and do all we can to help them unlock their potential as they seek to understand and follow their roles in God’s mission of redemption.
