Belgium (and most of Europe) is considered to be very difficult ground for bringing the Good News of Jesus. According to Operation World, 1.2% of the population is evangelical Christian and another 0.9% is charismatic Christian. Most Belgians have given up on faith and have little or no knowledge of the Biblical story. This means that, though we will be ministering in the church, we will be acting as missionaries to make disciples.
My role will be to help the church in 3 key areas: children, youth and Alpha. It’s exciting to be able to take my experience and passion and serve with a team of elders, pastors, staff, bivocational missionaries and local Belgians. This church has many highly involved members. I’ve been told that my job is to work myself out of a job!
There are many other questions to answer, but I think this is enough for now. Tune in as I keep you up to date here!
