The aims of the webinar are:
1) To highlight the great spiritual need in the Nordic countries;
2) To tell people about some of the things that God is doing in those countries;
3) To encourage Christians and churches to think more about the Nordic countries, to pray more for them, and to do more to support gospel work in that part of Europe.
46 days after the start of the war in Ukraine, we hear the testimonies of workers right on the front line of supporting people whose lives have been turned upside down by the conflict. We will be talking to EMF missionaries and other workers located right on the edge of the warzone, in the West of Ukraine, and in neighbouring the countries of Moldova, Poland and Romania. And we will be asking them to tell us about:
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:
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
