Chris and Lotta are based at Emmaus Church in Åkersberga, Stockholm.
Chris is working to lead this newly-established church, as well as running outreach ministries in Stockholm City and Uppsala. Lotta is engaged in church administration and in discipleship training. They both hope to produce a course for evangelism and discipleship training that is tailored to the Swedish cultural setting. Chris and Lotta also plan to provide training programmes for those involved in church planting throughout Sweden, and to run training conferences in expository preaching (Schools of Biblical Training) that will empower the Church to stand up for Christ and live out the gospel in the 21st century.

Looking back is always a good exercise. It reminds you of what has been achieved and what hasn’t, especially when you are on the mission field. It helps you to see if your goals have been reached - and if not, why not?! When we came back to Sweden from Serbia we faced all kinds of obstacles - and some we still do. And yes, it took us a good couple of years to go through the transition into Swedish society again.
A lot of things we set out to do in our vision for Sweden have been achieved in a short time and others haven’t - yet. For example, some years ago we wanted to start a group in the church to train expository preaching but that did not happen. We know now that it was too early to launch that kind of ministry then. On the other hand, we started a leaders’ training course for our home groups earlier than we anticipated and we are very happy with how things are progressing in that area.
