EMF's Expanded Vision for Europe
February 7, 2022
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Andrew Birch & Darren Moore
Series
An Expanded Vision for Europe
Description
Mission Director Andrew Birch describes EMF's expansion of its vision for Europe

Europe is the spiritually neediest continent in the world, with relatively few evangelical Christians and gospel churches, and a lot of gospel-less religion and godless secularism. The Balkans and the Nordics are two especially needy regions. Europe needs more gospel workers and a renewed vision for the planting of new gospel churches. EMF is committed to expanding its support of gospel work in Europe, and is inviting churches and Christians to join them.

In this webinar, Darren Moore (Minister of Chelmsford Presbyterian Church and EMF Trustee) will be interviewing Mission Director Andrew Birch to discuss in more detail:

  • What is EMF's expanded vision?
  • What led EMF to expanding its missionary vision?
  • Are there particular regions of interest?
  • How will work be funded, and how does this tie in with existing work?
  • How can supporters get involved?

Proclaiming and Defending the Gospel: The Relationship between Evangelism and Apologetics
December 13, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Dr. Dan Strange
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
We'll be considering the place of apologetics in our fulfilment of the Great Commission, not as a substitute for gospel proclamation, but as a preparation for and partner of that proclamation.

Two Dangers to Avoid:

1)       The danger of thinking that apologetics is all that we need to engage in;

2)       The danger of not appreciating the great value of apologetics as part of our mission strategy

Some topics we're hoping to cover

  • What is the Church's mission?
  • What is evangelism?
  • What is apologetics?
  • How are they different?
  • How are they complementary?
  • What are the dangers?
  • What are the benefits?
  • What is the biblical basis of apologetics?
  • How to do apologetics well?

Our Panellists:

Dr. Dan Strange
Director, Crosslands Forum
Daniel Grimwade
Pastor of Dewsbury Evangelical Church, and chair of EMF Trustees
José Moreno Berrocal (with his wife Virtudes)
Pastor of the evangelical church in Alcázar de San Juan, and EMF Missionary

The Gospel in the Republic of Ireland
September 13, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Pastor Shane Deane, Pastor Paudge Mulvihill, Rev. Alastair Dunlop
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
The Republic of Ireland continues to be one of the most spiritually needy countries in Europe, as the country becomes increasingly secular at the same time as moving away from its long-standing devotion to Roman Catholicism. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of church plants across the country, with initiatives such as the Cork-Kerry Project leading to several encouraging works. But what is the current situation, and what are the needs of those working for the gospel in the country?

In this webinar Phil Dunn, the EMF Northern Ireland Representative, will be interviewing 3 men all involved closely in church plants in the Republic of Ireland: Pastor Shane Deane of Passage West Baptist Church, Pastor Paudge Mulvihill of Calvary Church, Westport, and Rev. Alastair Dunlop of Howth & Malahide Presbyterian Churches. They will be exploring the recent history of the work of the gospel in Ireland, and describing the current situation.

Do join us to find our more about the cause of the gospel in the Republic of Ireland, and to understand how you can support the work more, whether in prayer, giving, encouragement, practical support, or even going!

Engaging Eastern Orthodoxy
June 7, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Panagiotis Kantartzis
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
Sharing the gospel with Eastern Orthodox people

Giotis Kantartzis

Panagiotis (Giotis) Kantartzis leads us in considering Eastern Orthodoxy from an evangelical perspective: Are there areas we would agree on, areas we where we would disagree? He will particularly focus on the area of the doctrine of salvation. But he will also share his experience of how to share the gospel with people from an Eastern Orthodox background, who are often suspicious about evangelical Christianity.

Giotis Kantartzis is senior pastor of the First Greek Evangelical Church in Athens, Greece, visiting professor at Greek Bible College, coordinator of City to City Balkans and director of the Institute for the Study of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. He has recently published ‘A Christian’s Pocket Guide to Eastern Orthodox Theology’

The Great Pioneers
May 10, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Mike Tindall (Minister at Grace Church Manchester)
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
William Carey is often called "the father of modern missions", and his work in India was truly pioneering. This webinar will look at Carey's life and ministry, reveal some of the hard realities behind the legend, and consider the vital lessons we learn about missions.
Mike Tindall
Mike Tindall (Minister at Grace Church Manchester)

William Carey, along with the other missionaries who went out to Serampore in the late 18th century, were pioneering in the way in which they turned principles in to practice to bring the gospel to India in a colonial context. Hard realities shaped their practice, and so much of what they learned and applied has steered modern mission.

But the mission field is ever-changing, with a rapidly changing world, and so we have to constantly re-think how we apply principles and practices to reach a lost world today.

Mike Tindall re-visits William Carey's life and ministry, to think through again how we might learn from him and apply lessons to today's mission in Europe.
