Brothers & Sisters In Christ,
For the past several years, I have been teaming up with other experienced worship leaders to serve in different parts of Europe doing evangelical outreach - concerts, as a street musician, spontaneous spiritual conversations, sharing Jesus with refugees, and more. This summer, I have been invited to be a part of a service team, providing worship and technical support at the Greater Europe Mission (GEM) annual missions conference in Europe. GEM is a large missions organization, focused on making disciples and planting churches in Europe since the end of WWII.

Although once steeped in Christianity, most of Europe has rejected or is even unaware of the gospel. Most European countries have less than 2% evangelical Christians. With the turmoil around the world, Europeans - especially the young generation and immigrants – are becoming more open to the gospel. GEM is committed to not only seeing Europeans come to Christ, but discipling them to be disciple-makers and church planters.

The GEM annual conference is a time of teaching, worship and encouragement for these long term and life time missionaries. For most, this is the only time they have an opportunity to join a large group of English-speakers, worshiping in their native language. For many, this is the breath of fresh air they need to continue in ministry.

Because the conference is designed for them to be a time of rest and rejuvenation, they rely on volunteers to run the technical aspects of the conference, as well as provide a strong worship team. We will spend our time serving them, overseeing the main conference sessions from early in the morning through the evening.

My former church, Fellowship Bible Church, has been asked to organize this team of worship and tech leaders from different churches. I am honored that they have reached out to me to be a part of it. Each volunteer team member is required to raise their own support of $2700 which includes airfare, ground transportation, food and lodging. We have to raise this support as soon as possible. The dates are July 28 through Aug 4.
Would you consider investing in the gospel in Europe by making a tax-deductible offering? Even if you can’t help financially, please consider being a prayer partner. Prayers are invaluable.
