Throughout the last 15 years, EBF Mission Partnerships has helped start about 230 new congregations and at least 15,000 people have become new believers and members of these churches. Through these mission partnerships God has been at work, changing lives and transforming communities.

THE PROJECT

Church Planting

The European Baptist Federation with the generous help of its Mission Partners (MP) has developed a partnership to facilitate evangelism and the planting of new Baptist churches in Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia. The MP provides funding for suitably gifted people to work as evangelists and church planters in their own countries. The overall goal of MP is to unite Baptists in making Christ known among the diverse nations of Europe and the Middle East.

The experience of MP confirms that indigenous missionaries are the most effective in their ministry. They know their people, culture and language, and that contributes to their good success. The MP is seeing significant fruit in changed lives and transformed communities.

 

The EBF organises the Mission Partnerships in cooperation with the member Unions. An important principle of MP is that indigenous church planters are selected and supervised by local leaders. The MP is designed for 5 years. Following a start-up phase of two-and-a-half years, the outside support is reduced by 25% annually in the expectation of gradual financial involvement from local sources. The annual support of one church planter is in the range of € 3 000 to € 6 000 depending on the country.
