The Mobo Award Winner is currently out there for the JV (Josiah’s Venture) Conference.
The evangelical church in the Czech Republic is tiny, making up only less than one-third of one percent in a country of 10 and a half million. Most Czechs have no religious affiliation. Several cults have made significant inroads in recent years, particularly the Jehovah’s witnesses. They number close to 25,000, making them twice as large as the largest evangelical denomination.
Still, the church is growing, and there is a renewed interest in spiritual things, especially among young people. A new generation of leaders has risen up since the revolution, and their efforts are bringing significant change to the spiritual climate of the country. Camps and relational evangelism have been particularly effective since extended time is needed to break down the barriers of mistrust and give enough information so a challenge to faith in Christ can be made. The greatest need is for evangelism of the lost while the doors of interest are still open, and for equipping a new generation of leaders for the Church.
The ministries outlook is to pray for courage and innovation in evangelism, and pray that the Church would not fall into complacency or be lured by the god of materialism. Pray for people to serve and do the work that so desperately needs to be done in order to mobilize young people for the task of building Christ’s Kingdom.
All the best Faith!
