Across Europe, nations that were some of the first to hear of Christ are now nearly devoid of evangelical Christians. At these summer events, some of our Mission Partners in Europe will be joining us to share how God is working to ‘seek and save the lost’ in environments increasingly hostile to the gospel.
Mark Oden is a Crosslinks Mission Partner in Naples, Italy - a city with widespread dependence on religious sacraments and a startlingly low number of native evangelical believers. On 27 June, Mark will share his experience of planting a church in Naples. Local Neapolitan Christians Francesco and Milena will join Mark and help explain why Italy is a field ‘ripe for harvest’.

Trevor Watson is a Mission Partner in Gothenburg, Sweden. He will be flying over from Sweden for both the Crosslinks summer events in Ireland, to share his experience of gospel work in a nation that is now a spiritual wasteland. Churches are closing and many that remain have turned away from the truth of God’s word. Trevor will speak from the book of Lamentations: he will lament the desolation that occurs when God’s people turn away from God’s word; remind us of God’s steadfast love and faithfulness towards his people; and encourage us in our partnership together as we seek God for the reformation and restoration that Sweden so desperately needs.
7.30pm Seeking Europe’s Lost
Trevor Watson, Mission Partner in Sweden, will speak again on his experience of gospel work in a nation that is a spiritual wasteland. For more details, see above.
